Franch.[1]

Nomocharis is a genus of the family Liliaceae. It consists of about 7 species native to montane regions of western China, Myanmar, and northern India.[2] They are similar to Lilium, with one of the more obvious differences being the flowers being more shallow or sometimes flat.[3]

Taxonomy[edit]

The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families, as of January 2014, considers Nomocharis a separate genus in its own right,[1] however some authorities consider Nomocharis to be embedded within Lilium, rather than treat it as a separate genus.[2][4]

Species[edit]

The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 10 species as of January 2014:[1]
