Allium egorovae
Allium elburzense Award:
  PC (Preliminary Commendation)

Origin: Iran

Shown by: Ivor Betteridge

The plant was shown as Allium elburzense. In 2013, a detailed review of the genus in Iran was published by Fritsch and Abbasi. Images in this lengthy revision underpin an earlier suggestion that the material exhibited represents A. egorovae instead, a species described in 2000. The AM awarded to the same plant on 10 May 2014 also needs altering.
