Wurmbea stricta. This species used to be classified first in the genus Dipidax, then in Onixotis. This specimen photographed near Hermon in the Western Cape, but the species occurs widely in seasonally wet regions in fynbos.

Wurmbea is a genus of perennial herbs in the family Colchicaceae, native to Africa and Australia. There are about 50 species, with about half endemic to each continent.

Recently the circumscription of the genus Wurmbea has been increased to include Onixotis punctata and Onixotis stricta.[1]

African species accepted by the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families as of January 2015[update] are:[2][3]
