Overview Code created in: 1997-09-29
- EPPO Code: 1CIXG
- Preferred name: Chionodoxa
- Authority: Boissier
Many authors have considered that Chionodoxa should be included into the genus Scilla (as a section) because morphological differences (e.g. flattened bases of stamens, stamens closely clustered in the middle of the flowers) are not sufficient to create a separate genus.
