If you look at the stamens you can see that in Vagaria there is the pancratoid element: a pseudocorona done with the basal part of the stamens. Vagaria olivieri is from Marocco. It si winter growing with very little water; absolutely no water in summer.

Here is vagaria olivieri in the wild, in Morocco, near the ocean.
It was flowering 1 week ago, and you can see on the same plant : flowers, green seed pod and mature seeds !
It blooms very close to the ground... and to the scorpions  :(

Interesting genus that I've never heard of before.  Cute little thing by the look of it.  Winter water, dry summer, small flower and unusual...... sounds like half my garden. ;D ;D
Cheers.

Min winter temp -8 or -9C. Max summer temp 40C. Thankfully, maybe once or twice a year only.
