Pls ID. this ‘Thunder lily’ of Amaryllidaceae.
Place-Thekkady Kerala
Habit-cultivated garden

Not thunder lily (Zephyranthes)

It Amaryllis lilyHippeastrum, more likely H. puniceum


For me the ID by … seems to be correct.


I also think close to Hippeastrum puniceum as per comparative images at Pacific Bulb society.
