Does there really exist a plant named Helleborus niger 'White Beauty'? Hellebore (Helleborus 'White Beauty')

The reason I ask is that there is a hellebore called Helleborus 'White-Beauty' that is often sold as Helleborus x nigercors 'White Beauty'. So I wonder if this is some naming confusion where nigercors has become niger? I believe the entry should be Helleborus 'White Beauty', but I could of course be wrong about this.

I agree, it should probably read Helleborus x nigercors 'White Beauty':
