As part of a taxonomic revision of the Iberian and Balearic taxa of Ornithogalum, quantitative and qualitative characters are studied in detail in Ornithogalum subg. Beryllis (Salisb.) Baker, and they are evaluated for taxonomy of the two taxa: O. narbonense L. and O. pyrenaicum L. A complete description is presented for both species, and data on their biology, ecology, and distribution are also included. Moreover, a key is provided to facilitate identification.
