Finally found the right title

Finally found the right title (Hippeastrum Reticulatum)

Last year we saved several bulbs from a plant that I believed were native amarillys, Willieintheaçores corrected me. For a long time I discussed with members of the botanical identification group to get the correct identification of this native plant of the region. Finally an expert botanist in our native plants, Professor Samuel Gonçalves, identified as Hippeastrum Reticulatum, of the amarilli family. We planted on the central avenue bed and this is the first flowering since the transplant.

Are you talking about the photo of the 16th of March? Because this is not the same as that one, and is flowering at a different time. Did the professor rule out Crinum submersum, which is a Brazilian native?

Willie, November 2018
I'll send the question about the Crinum submersum.

The one on 10 Nov 2018 looks like a H.r. It should have netted veining. It is also one of the few Hippeastrums that are self-fertile. What may be confusing is the number of flowers, since few Hippeastrums we see have more than 4 on a stalk, which is why I think of the Crinum, which is more of a spring/early summer flower.
