Tanay,
It can not be Chlorophytum borivilanum as Safed Musli petals are not so roundish-they are narrower and longer and look like Chameli flowers .Only thing it has distinct yellow anthers.

A reply:
"It's surely Chlorophytum without any doubt. but more probably new to science" from Avinash ji.

Dineshji,
 I m confused.If Chlorophytum tuberosum is Safed musali,then what is Chlorophytum borivilanum? All the time I was under impression that borivilanum is Safed Musali.
Regards,
Shobha

Shobha ji ... safed musali (white musali) is shared by at least three small herbs -- Chlorophytum tuberosum, Chlorophytum borivilanum and Curculigo alba ... their roots have similar medicinal values.
Another name for safed musali in Marathi is कुळई kulai.

... kali musali (black musali) is shared by Curculigo orchioides, Curculigo nigra (not sure of latter's spelling)


Regards.
