I was looking at the iris genus and it has Iris domestica, aka Leopard Lily, Blackberry Lily, and it gives several synonyms. It really looks odd in the iris listing in my humble opinion even though it's in the Iridaceae family. Blinking
Species Iris (Iris domestica)

But there still is the Belamcanda listed here: http://garden.org/plants/brows...

According to Wiki, the Belamcanda genus got reclassified as Iris:

In 2005, based on molecular DNA sequence evidence, Belamcanda chinensis, the sole species in the genus Belamcanda, was transferred to the genus Iris and renamed Iris domestica.

Iris domestica.. family Iridaceae

http://apps.rhs.org.uk/horticu...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I...

Belamcanda flabellata in the RHS brings up Iris domestica. They should be moved to that entry under the name of Iris domestica.

On Itis Belamcanda flabellata brought no results, Belamcanda chinensis did, it's not accepted but it's a synonym, the accepted name is Iris domestica.
