I have plants in my yard that I have been told are Resurrection Lily, or Lycoris squamigera. However, I see that Amaryllis belladonna looks almost identical. My zone is 7A, and these lovelies have just bloomed this week. Where can I find an expert -- or a dichotomous key -- to tell which these are?

Photos are of the narcissus-like leaves in spring, and the flowers this week.

Thank you for help extended.
