Unambiguous scientific name Scilla peruviana

We won't have to worry about Scilla peruviana much longer, since the genus 
has been revised and split into about 14 genera, at least some of which 
will probably be accepted. I'm pretty sure S. peruviana and its one or two 
close relatives form one of the new genera.

Instead, we will be confronted with the name Oncostema peruviana, and will 
think it is a previously unfamiliar plant from South America.
