Biology : In a generic revision of Hyacinthaceae (Edinb. J. Bot. 60: 544-553, 2004) Manning & al. lumped several genera into a single large genus Ornithogalum comprising 250-300 species. Manning & al. redefined the delimitation of the genus (Taxon 58: 77-107, 2009) and reinstated Albuca, Dipcadi and Pseudogaltonia. Thus the genus Ornithogalum (called “clade C”, also including 2 species of Stellarioides) was reduced to c. 160 species.
