Hippeastrum puniceum & Hippeastrum reginae- difference:
There is confusion between the two. I could get the keys at Two new critically endangered species of Hippeastrum (Amaryllidaceae) from the Brazilian Cerrado
7.   Flowers generally campanulate; apex of the tepals salmon or  orange, rarely  pink, yellowish  to green adaxially at their base and forming a circular pattern at the throat ……H. puniceum (Fig. 6I)
–.   Flowers infundibuliform; apex of the tepals dark red to carmine, greenish white adaxially at the base with extensions to the middle of the limb ……..H. reginae (Fig. 6J).

Both species are reported from India as per details at Hippeastrum

Still it appears an uphill task to decipher it.

I have updated eFI (efloraofindia) page on Hippeastrum

Attempts have been made to incorporate most of the species available in India & nearby areas with details & keys directly or through links as far as possible. It’s quite possible that there may be some discrepancy in the accepted names & synonyms taken from other links.

Species discussed so far in efloraofindia are given at the bottom of the page in the form of links against Subpages. On clicking them one can see all the details.

If someone can provide complete list of Indian species with source references it will be wonderful.

Any comments/ corrections are welcome.


.

Pl. go through Hippeastrum page (Amaryllidaceae) with images of species in efloraofindia (done by …).

If you find any mis-identification, pl. let us know.
If anybody can send images of other species of this genera (for incorporation in the website), it will be really nice. Also, if anybody is interested to take up the activity of inserting images on efloraofindia pages from efloraofindia posts, pl. let us know.
