Pamianthe is a genus of South American bulbous perennials in the Amaryllis family, subfamily Amaryllidoideae.[4] They can be found in sandy, but rocky areas in Colombia,[5] Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.[1][6]

The plants produce umbels of large, fragrant white flowers in the spring. They resemble daffodils, hence the common name Peruvian daffodil for at least one of the species.
