Notes

Comments

Aletris stenoloba is very similar to A. spicata and the two species may easily be confused in the absence of fruiting material; the capsule shape is the most reliable distinguishing character. Fruiting material of A. stenoloba and A. laxiflora may also be confused, although the latter differs in its glabrous perianth with lobes 1--5 × tube length.
