Rafa,
Romulea is one of my favourite genera of South African bulbs, though this one is Mediterranean isn't it?
Hopefully we'll get some good blooms on ours in the spring and I can show you some of the ones we grow. Keep your pics coming!
cheers

Hello Fermi,
Yes i't is, this is a picture of wild Romulea bulbocodium. In Spain also there are
R. columnae ssp. occidentalis
R. columnae ssp. columnae
R. clusiana
R. uliginosa
R. ramiflora ssp. gaditana

I'm  also love this genus, like the rest of Iridaceae. Fermi, do you grow R. phoenicia? I have some seeds, collected from the wild in Israel, I you want I could send you some.

Rafa,
Did you see my previous post http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=222.0 ?
What do you think about the identification of this plant ?

I can't aport any information to ID, I think, it's not enought a picture to identified them, It's necessary to exam the plant.

About Gynandriris, Peter Goldblat has included this genus as Moraea. I LOVE this genus Moraea. I will try to take pictures a huge field in Caceres (Spain) with this plant.

Regards
