Aaron, I am sorry I did not email to let you know straight away. I probably missed you by a few minutes. Thanks.

Guys, its possible that there could be species other than E. cucullatus in our part of the world, but the only way of telling them apart is by the leaf as it appears at flowering time. The leaf of E. cucullatus is barely developed at flowering. So if possible try and photograph the leaf as well as the flower.
