This form of Ledebouria socialis is frequently sold/offered under the names luteo-socialis, pauciflora, and under some Scilla names. I have also seen it as Drimiopsis burkei. The correct name is L. pauciFOLIA not -flora. Baker did not specify how it differed from L. socialis described in the same paper. Both were from the "Cape Colony." But, reading through the descriptions the number of leaves and number of flowers per inflorescence differs, slightly. For a name call it L. socialis -- broad leaved form. The variation in this very widespread eastern South African species needs work, but the range in variation is not likely quantitatively significant.
