It would seem the combination Ledebouria paucifolia has never been made even though Baker described these new Scilla as "Scilla [Ledebouria] spp", knowing that they all fit within the Ledebouria section of Scilla at the time (1875). I also meant to mention that the type of Scilla paucifolia is clearly the more ovate leaved L. socialis in cultivation, but it is not clear if it is distinctly different.

I just made a quick Google search and found a plant that has beautiful leaves and flowers that look exactly like what we have come to know as L. socialis *except* that it lacks any purple coloring. Take a look at the link below and you can perhaps see into the past where Baker studied a plant similar to this one. So with that, I think the synonomy of this particular plant and L. socialis is pretty certain. http://cactus-art.biz/schede/LEDEBOURIA/… However, most of the plants out there, including Jude's plant do not have leaves that look like this at all. They are ovate and have faint minute markings. They a much slower growing plant as well, despite the ability to produce lots of offsets. I remember when I broke a leaf on my plant. It took months before the leaf was replaced. However, all of this does not mean that it can't just be another form of L. socialis. The Ledebouria-Scilla-Resnova-Drimiopsis group is a big mess and until someone works out the details, we will have to try and stick to the most correct name we know of. Both of the names "L. pauciflora" AND "L. paucifolia" are applied to this plant when doing a web search. The problem is that both of these names are not valid under any plant list, even the most comprehensive of them: http://www.theplantlist.org/. A Google search for L. pauciflora brings up 14,500 hits whereas L. paucifolia only brings up 2,640 hits. The entry on the PBS wiki is meant to catch the most searches. There is no synonym on the page so I'll add it to that page.
