Cyanixia socotrana (syn.: Babiana socotrana) is a perennial, herbaceous and bulbous plant species in the Iridaceae family endemic to Socotra. The genus name is derived from the Greek words Ixia, referring to the radially symmetrical flowers in the genus of that name, as well as cyanos, meaning "blue". It was known until 2003 as Babiana socotrana.
