Greg's seedlings still growing

A group of us in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, pooled our money and
bought a full share in Greg Ruckert's China expedition. We divvied up the
seeds equally, and I got one of most offerings, and occasionally two or
three. 19 species germinated for me - ie the radicle emerged - but I
didn't make note of how many produced cotyledons or leaves. Now I have
just searched my collection of pots and find that one, #8841 (A. bogneri)
has three corms, and that is the sum total of my investment adventure. The
other pots are empty.
My bogneri is currently still dormant, but I hope I will be able to donate
seed - surely with three plants that will be possible.
What about the rest of the group?
I have noticed that Roy Herold sometimes uses a similar numeric code for
his seed donations. Are these from plants grown from Greg's seeds?
The seeds that germinated for me were numbered thusly:
8630, 8841 (still alive)
9222, 9417, 9549, 9554
9614, 9654, 9657, 9660, 9661, 9665, 9669, 9671, 9674, 9677, 9678
