Exactly. Typically at a newspaper the writer delivers the written story, a
couple of other people edit it, and the images come from yet another person.
The images in this case are credited to Getty Images, meaning someone
searched there for "amarine" and "amaryllis" and dropped the results into
the page. Hippeastrum snuck in there because "amaryllis" is still the common
name often used for that genus. 

If you go to the Getty Images site and search for "amaryllis" you will see
what I mean. 

I can just picture that photo editor muttering, "well, Getty says this is an
Amaryllis, that must be right."

King Onyx, there are a few photos on my blog that may be useful:

Good luck with your project!
