Iphigenia pallida: Iphigenia pallida
At kas plateau, Satara
19 June2011 

Amaryllidaceae from Pune-NS1:  Found these tiny flowers on a hill side in Bhugaon, Pune.
I think Pancratium parvum ( Amaryllidaceae ). Please confirm the Id.
Habit- Herb
Habitat-wild
Size- 20 cm (appx)
Leaves- Linear-lanceolate.
Flowers- White, fragrant.


Yes it is Iphigenia pallida
I suppose it was under Liliaceae earlier but according to The Plant List it is under Colchicaceae.
The flower size is 8 mm whereas in Pancratium it is much bigger 5-10 cm.


Iphigenia pallida / Pale Grass Lily then it is.

Kaas Week : Iphigenia stellata: Aug., 2009


I feel this is I.pallida.


Before uploading I had given a serious thought but not on confirm grounds…. an you help me differentiating between the two


It is infact the corolla that is a visual differentiator.
The key in Flora of Maharashtra is as follows:
Flowers white or with purplish tinge; perianth lobes oblanceolate …….I.indica
Flowers bright pink; perianth lobes broadly elliptic…….. I.stellata
images posted by … under I.stellata clearly shows these features.


I find it slightly confusing
I. indica, I. pallida and I. stellata as three distinct species.
You have identified the plant as I. pallida but give key which does not include this.


Oops a typo error again. I apologise for the error. The first one is I.pallida.
the correct key is :
Flowers white or with purplish tinge; perianth lobes oblanceolate …….I.pallida
Flowers bright pink; perianth lobes broadly elliptic…….. I.stellata


As suggested by you, following is the complete key:
1. Perianth purple, segments linear – subdulate or elliptic -linear:

2. Stems branched; filaments glabrous…… I. magnifica

2. Stems not branched; filaments hairy ……… I. indica

1. Perianth white or pink segments elliptic or oblanceolate

3. Flowers white or with purplish tinge; perianth lobes oblanceolate …….I.pallida
3. Flowers bright pink; perianth lobes broadly elliptic…….. I.stellata

Attached are images for I. magnifica with glabrous filaments.
