As a part of a taxonomic revision of the Iberian and Balearic taxa of Ornithogalum, the results concerning O. subg. Ornithogalum are reported. Quantitative and qualitative characters were studied in detail, and they were evaluated for the taxonomy of the three accepted taxa: O. baeticum Boiss., O. bourgaeanum Jord. & Fourr. and O. divergens Boreau. A complete description is presented
of all accepted species, and data on their nomenclature, biology, ecology, and distribution are also included. Relationships to other European taxa of the subgenus are also discussed. Moreover, a neotype is designated. Finally, a key is provided to facilitate identification
