Ecologie : Under shade of trees, after the first rains. Reported with doubt from S Malawi by Strugnell, Checklist spermat. Mt. Mulanje: 108, 2006 (under Scilla), in stream-fringing bush, at 850 m alt. Also listed by Mapaura & Timberlake, Checklist Zimbabwean vascul. pl.: 91, 2004, and by Phiri, Checklist Zambian vascul. pl. 115, 2005. The plant pictured by Pickering & Roe, Wild. flow. Victoria Falls area: 65, 2009, as L. zambesiaca seems to be L. revoluta.
  Although the bulb is reported as very small, L. zambesiaca may well be a form of the widespread and variable L. revoluta. Their distribution areas (see our maps) seem complementary.
