Abstract

Lilium regale (Liliaceae) naturalized in Argentina and new records for southern Brazil.

Abstract

In this study Lilium regale (Liliaceae) is cited for the first time for Misiones, Argentina, where it occurs as a naturalized species, and new records for southern Brazil are added. The species description, synonymy, iconography, distribution, phenology, pollination, dispersal, vernacular names, uses, reference materials, and comments about its naturalization are included. A key to differentiate L. regale from L. longiflorum, the other naturalized Liliaceae in Argentina, is also presented.
