Drimia maritima (L.) Stearn

Drimia maritima (L.) Stearn



  • Scilla maritima L.
  • Charybdis maritima (L.) Speta
  • Urginea maritima (L.) Baker


A W Mediterranean taxon absent from Greece, replaced there by D. aphylla and D. numidica, respectively (Euro+Med 2006-). The wide circumscription of Drimia by Manning & Goldblatt (2004) is followed here. However, the mediterranean representatives of Drimia are optionally placed in a segregate genus, Charybdis (Speta 2001, Pfosser & Speta 2004).
