Pancratium maritimum and angustifolium

I got in front of me the leaves of the 3 current species:
P canariensis: 12mm, P maritimum: 15mm, P. illyricum: 50mm wide
P zeylanicum I got not at hand here.
By observing nthe growth and flowering cycle you will ha ve  no  problems 
which one the four species it will be.
