Oops, sorry Mark, your post about the message from Chris came in the middle of my writing a post, and I attributed your comment to cohan by mistake. Sorry about that, and thanks for the information!

No problem Saori.  By the way, your dog is adorable (see: http://nargs.org/smf/index.php?topic=916.msg13584#msg13584), what is his or her name?

Thanks, Mark! His name is Peppa. He is a nine-year-old standard poodle. He 'helps' me in the garden. :)

Wow, can't wait to see the results of growing that most interesting list of species! 
I was just looking at Lindelofia stylosa and I think it may the one pictured in the upper right of the photo montage in Mark's first posting in this thread?

The illustration in this link (below) shows seed pods that look very similar to the photo:

The link says the flowers are purple or purplish-red... sounds nice!

Yes, I think it is Lindelofia stylosa; I'd be happy if I received seed of this one.  Here are a couple links I found showing the plant in flower:

Some lovely seed there Saori - I grew Primula reidii years ago from Jack Drake seed and it is one of the most exquisite plants I have ever grown. Chris has given us talks on his seed collecting trips; always very impressive.

I must say I would be very happy with Mark's grassy allium beds, very naturalistic and attractive.
