Notes

According to the characters given, the recently described Leopoldia neumannii clearly turns out to be conspecific with Muscari weissii (see Appendix II). The authors (Böhnert & Lobin 2017) merely failed to consider the latter for comparison. The generic concept of Muscari Mill. (incl. Muscari subgen. Leopoldia (Parl.) Zahar. = Leopoldia Parl.) is accepted for the Flora of Greece project following Davis & Stuart (in Tutin & al. 1980: 46, corroborated by Speta 1982) who state that the differences between the subgenera within Muscari are considered to be of minor taxonomic importance.
