A taxonomic study on the genus Lycoris ( Amaryllidaceae )
Kyoung Hwan Tae, Sung Chul Ko
Ten taxa of the genus Lycoris (Amaryllidaceae) were reexamined on the basis of their morphological characteristics and distributions. Also, a new key and an enumeration were prepared. Ten taxa treated were classified into four groups. Group 1 consists of L. sanguinea var. sanguinea, L. sanguinea var, koreana and L. sanguinea var. kiushiana, and group 2 comprises L. aurea, L, albiflora and L, chinensis var. sinuolata. Group 3 contains L. squamigera, L. flavescens and L. chejuensis, while in group 4 L. radiata is the only species present. Morphologically, two similar taxa, L. sanguinea var. sanguinea and L, sanguinea var. koreana, could be divided by the length of bracts and width of perianths. Lycoris flavescens, L. chejuensis and L. chinensis var. sinuolata were treated as Korean endemic taxa. Lycoris albiflora and L. sanguinea var. kiushiana are distributed only in Japan, L. sanguinea var. sanguinea in China and Japan, and L. aurea in China, Taiwan and Japan.
