It really exsits and it is for sure not trigyna, nor raddeana or even not C. szovitsii as K. Persson considers it now - see corms for comparison."

Merendera ghalghana, W Caucasus

Merendera trigyna (coriaceous tunics), N Caucasus vs Merendera ghalghana (papery tunics), W Caucasus   

Colchicum szovitsii subsp. szovitsii, S Transcaucasia, Armenia

Merendera raddeana, S Transcaucasia, Armenia
