Dear H S
I am not able to understand whom you are asking to elaborate family Liliaceae. I think every botanist knows that Liliaceae of Bentham & Hooker has now been split into several families and all modern classifications place Sansevieria under Asparagaceae, and Satish ji had rightly given this family name. In a group with such diversity of members, many of whom must be reading older books, giving older family name is not an issue. We should just politely give the recent family name.
