I sugegsted S. multiforus indeed but I do not agree with reason for the
infraspecific katharinae suggestion: S. multiflorus ssp. katharinae differs
from the typical subspecies and subsp. longitubus exclusively in sizes of a
number of floral characters. The spots on the "pseudo"-bulb are present in
the entire species.

My vote would go to the person who suggested Scadoxus - that used to be
Haemanthus. .More specifically I think it is probably Scadoxus multiflorus
katherinae.  All of my bulbs of this have that spotted look on glossy green
- more so than Eucomis or Drimiopsis.  Derek

Eucomis is a good guess. It may also be a scilla or drimiopsis.

I've had a request to help ID this bulb. The requester thought it was an
aroid, which I seem to doubt (are there any aroids that are true bulbs?).

I'm not sure if the two attached photos will come through to the list.
If not then anyone willing to try an ID can email me *privately*
(please) and I'll resend the photos directly to you.

(My impression is Eucomis sp)
