|A. cyathophorum var. farreri|
Bureau & Franch.
This species has thick roots but thin, fibrous bulbs. Scapes are usually 2-angled, up to 15 cm tall. Leaves are flat, narrowly linear, usually shorter than the scapes. Umbels are hemispheric with purple flowers.
William Stearn originally named A. farreri in 1930 after Reginald Farrer, but in 1950 realised it was a variety of A. cyathophorum, and so renamed it.
