    I'm lonely, the only species of my genus. What am I please?

    Both names, and a common one if you can. There are two common names that I'm aware of, neither of which is in English....

    Oops! must be wrong since it's the only one in the genus!

    Actually, salt, you've got it right. The common names I know are Chiriyuyu and Flor del Viento.

    My books may have it wrong or be out of date. All apologies if this is so.
