 Mary Sue, in reporting her experiences with using Plants of the World Online, gives a list relating to the genus Lycoris. She wrote "These are the accepted species of Lycoris from that resource"

Some of the taxa on the list are species, some are nothospecies.  Nothospecies and species are not the same thing. 
Perhaps the list is meant to be a list of accepted names, not a list of accepted species. 'Jim McKenney
