This is Crinum viviparum. C. asiaticum is much larger and is not aquatic.

Since C. defixum Ker and C. ensifolium Roxb. of FBI are syn. of Crinum viviparum (Lam.) R.Ansari & V.J.Nair, I think the id is probable as per KEY and description in FBI, BP, BoBO.
It is Crinum viviparum. C. defixum is synonym of C. viviparum.
I agree, Crinum defixum
Flora of Panipat: Crinum defixum:
Jangli lahsun: Can any one please tell me the correct identity of a plant called Jangali Lahsun. According to me the name is Crinum defixum. however, on chemical tests the plant which we have collected from Bihar and Jharkhand region is not giving a proper test for the presence of chemicals reported in literature for crinum defixum. that means the identity is wrong for the plant on our part.
If you are working with the plant, you must be having flowering specimens, photograph or herbarium. Crinum can’t be confused with species of Allium (some may be called as Jungli lassun). Perhaps if you send photographs some of us may be able to identify.
If you are sure about Crinum defixum Ker-Gawl which is now Crinum viviparum Ansari& Nair, then this is a plant that grows on the rocky beds of rivers in peninsular India. I have a few plants in my collection and I can spare one for you.
More details furnished as below in another thread (https://groups.google.com/group/indiantreepix/… #):
“i am looking for a plant called Crinum defixum….the information for which is available on the following link…. http://www.indianetzone.com/38/kandali_plant
i need the bulbs of this plant in a substantial amount (~50kg fresh weight).
can anyone from Uttarakhand (preferably) or west bengal or any other state of peninsular India (preferred locations by this plant) help me collect the amount….
the problem is that some work was taken up on this plant by one of the PhD students at our institute (NIPER) but it so happened that the specimen which he collected seems to be fake and is not giving any results on the chemical analysis front…..his work is suffering…
can anyone please help… “
