Dear Cody and all, 

	I hate to sound too much here, but I have had people swear they are growing Lycoris and actually have Amaryllis. The opposite isn’t as common.  As I have mentioned before. In most locations you can one or the other. Few places wnere both will grow.  We still do not have actual photos in hand.

Though I’ll note that the author of that account claims the seed parents of
the supposed crosses were Lycoris, which would imply that if there was no
hybridization then the offspring should look like Lycoris, not A.
