Myrtifolia Alba van Houtte Catalogue, 1841, 7:14, who gave ‘Albicans’as its synonym. However ‘Albicans’ was published by Buist in 1839, which would give it priority. Verschaffelt, 1850, Nouvelle Iconographie, Book XII, pl.II says it was also known as ‘Myrtifolia Albicans’, ‘Schackkoenigen’ and ‘Princesse Royale de Gruneberg’ and that it was named by Rev. Herbert. Van Houtte Catalogue, 1859, 77:53 equates ‘Circe’ with ‘Myrtifolia Alba’ and Herbert published ‘Pumila’or ‘Circe’ in 1837, Amaryllideae Suppl., p.367, which makes Circe the prior valid name.
