Antholyza is a former genus in the family Iridaceae with species that were mainly similar in their flowers which are adapted to pollination by sunbirds. The numerous flowers were mostly orange to red with long curved perianth tubes and unequal segments. As the various species were studied, they were assigned to different genera including Babiana, Chasmanthe, Crocosmia, Gladiolus, and Tritoniopsis.
