Speta F. † (Gutermann W. & Speta E., ed.) 2016. Substitution of an illegitimate generic name in Hyacinthaceae, and validation of names of already described species in Ornithogalum (Hyacinthaceae) and Pinguicula (Lentibulariaceae). – Phyton (Horn, Austria) 56(2): 153–159.

The illegitimate name Duthiea (Hyacinthaceae) is replaced by Vera-duthiea Speta, and its three species, occasionally classified under an enlarged Drimia, are combined under the new generic name [Vera-duthiea macrocarpa (Stedje) Speta, V. noctiflora (Batt. & Trabut) Speta, and V. senegalensis (Kunth) Speta]. Validation of names is performed for nine species in Ornithogalum and two in Pinguicula, amply described earlier but deemed to be not validly published according to Art. 8 of the present Code.
