I think the plant suffers from identity crisis. Whiteheadia - strange genus name. I thought eggs do good for a complexion: http://suite101.com/article/egg-white-mask-a147309

If you never try, you'll never know if you were right or wrong. If I am wrong (and I frequently am) at least I learn something for having tried. GRIN

A synonym is the same and cannot be considered wrong. More like egg on my face as that came out wrong.

Hey Growin...Neither of us was wrong...both names were (at least at one time or another) correct...my comment was that I was glad I read your links before calling you on the ID...I would have felt silly correcting your already correct ID...No harm...no foul, just a grin(sheepish) for me.
