This is a genus with only one species. The plants are distinguished by the pale blue flowers with dark stripes and 6 lobed cup shaped corona formed by the union of the filaments.

It differs from the true squill in the genus Scilla by having perianth segments that are clearly united rather than distinct or merely fused at the base as they are in Scilla.
