Found these, but could not post them last week.. I thought they looked like 'Kalbreyeri'
I like them very much :)

@ Chun Xing could be Bomarea kalbreyeri too. Will have to read a little more on both Bromarea Caldasii and Bromarea Kalbreyeri before I finalize. Thanks so much for your valuable Feedback!

Not naturally, I believe the whole Alstroemeriaceae family is restricted to the Americas. Why do you ask?

These are in the Alstromeriaceae, the same family as Alstromeria, and it's easy to see the resemblance. As to which species this is, I couldn't say for certain without a decent key and plant in hand. Looking at the link, there are quite a few red with a yellow flecked throat but maybe someone has more familiarity with them than me and can give you a species name. Good luck :) Lovely plant
