CITES now also includes herbarium specimens of any CITES listed plant. 

Most CITES listings are indiscriminate which is obvious when all Orchidaceae are on there, Cycadaceae, Aloe, etc. I have not bothered to check, but I know they were pushing to put all Agave and Cactaceae in the list.

All galanthus are CITES listed plants and need permits.
Which again proves the indiscrimate nature of CITES with around 20 wild species of galanthus and a thousand or so cultivars!
