I'm not sure I have P. canariensis so I can't tell you how to tell them 
apart. But I have several other Pancratium species and none of them 
have leaves as blue-greyish as Paramongaia. Also, my Paramongaias' 
leaves are more leathery, or thicker, or stiffer, than any of the 
Pancratium species.

Finally, since we both liver fairly close to each other, I can tell you 
that my Pancratium species have started leafing our long before my 
Paramongaias. I think only one Paramongaia has barely started emerging 
the past week or so. The Pancratiums started leafing out a month ago or 
so. Of course all this early rain may change all that.
