The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families, as of January 2014, considers Nomocharis a separate genus in its own right,[1] however some authorities consider Nomocharis to be embedded within Lilium, rather than treat it as a separate genus.[2][4]


The World Checklist of Selected Plant Families accepted 10 species as of January 2014:[1]
