Dear Olga,

I am not sure to well understand your request. 

If you are looking for the protologue of that species, it was published by Pehr Forsskal (1775) in: 
“Flora Aegyptiaco-Arabica. Sive Descriptiones Plantarum, Quas per Aegyptum Inferiorem et Arabium Felicem Detexit”. 

Hope this help,

Dear Collegues,
I am Dr Olga De Castro and I hope you can help me. I need news about
Pancratium maximum Forsk. (Amaryllidaceae). According to my database, there are not scientific articles about this species.

So I need of pages where P. maximum is reported in:

Andrews, F.W. (1956). The Flowering Plants of the Sudan 3: 1-579.
T.Buncle & co., LTD., Arbroath, Scotland.

Ghazanfar, S.A. (1992). An Annotated Catalogue of the Vascular Plants
of Oman and their Vernacular names. Scripta Botanica Belgica 2:

Wood, J.R.I. (1997). A Handbook of the Yemen Flora: 1-434. The
Trustees, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Chaudhary, S.A. (2001). Flora of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia 3: 1-368.
Ministry of Agriculture & Water, Riyadh.

Can you help me?
All the best,
Olga De Castro
