Achimines pedunculata

This intensely brilliant little bit of color was grown from a tiny bit of rhizome received through the PBS seed and bulb exchange earlier this year. In an interesting coincidence, a plant of Sinningia bullata bloomed here this year, too. They share a similar  color pattern: I wonder if they share a pollinator in nature?  Achimines pedunculata seems to grow far north of  Sinningia bullata - their ranges do not overlap even remotely. I know I took a picture of the bloom of Sinningia bullata, but I can't find it.
