The genus Galanthus represents 19 species that have attracted the attention of gardeners for over 400 years and remain attractive ornamentals to this day. Propagation is mainly carried out by bulbs collected from the wild and this has lead to recent concerns regarding their conservation status and as such, the genus is now listed under CITES. This has lead to a demand for tools to aid in the identification of the members of this genus and so an attempt was made to develop an interactive key to the genus. A demonstration is given, alongside an outline of the problems associated with the identification of bulbous monocots and their potential solutions.
