Brunsvigia species unidentified

Unidentified Brunsvigia or related species.  There are a number of possibilities but the date of 1857 suggests that it was a true Brunsvigia, probably introduced from the Cape in a larger consignment of bulbs.  No other species are mentioned in Macarthur’s or Bidwill’s notes.
