another prolific bloomer IDed - Yellow Chestnutleaf Trumpetbush

The ubiquitous chestnutleaf trumpetbush (tecoma castanifolia). Take a close look at the flowers - they are often confused with the slightly bigger and equally omnipresent alamandas and with the national flower of the US virgin islands - the yellow bells (tecoma stans) which have compound leaves.
Click on the first picture and take a closer look at the leaves - they are simple leaves and have beautiful serated edges.
Now i wonder if these flowers are what are also called 'yellow bells'?
