Hi all,

My scillas started to show up today....

Updating my files I notived that Pushkinia is not taken into account by the PBS wiki pages and archives while IPNI still seems to keep the genus separate with the following list of species:

Puschkinia hyacinthoides Baker -- in Linn. Soc. Journ. xi. (1871) 435. (IK) 

Puschkinia peshmenii Rix & B.Mathew -- Curtis's Bot. Mag. 24(1): 56 (54-57; plate 582, fig., photo). 2007

Puschkinia scilloides Adams -- in Nov. Act. Acad. Petrop. xiv. (1805) 164. (IK) 

P. libanotica and P. sicula are considered as synonyms of P. scilloides.

Does anybody on the list have a clue about what is the state of the art for Pushkinia ?

Best wishes,
