From Medicinal Plants Usage

Template:Speciesbox Allium litardierei is a North African species of wild onion native to Algeria and Morocco.<ref>Kew World Checklist of Selected Plant Families</ref><ref>Litardière, René Verriet de & Maire, René Charles Joseph Ernest. 1924. Mémoires de la Société des Sciences Naturelles du Maroc 4: 21</ref>

The oldest name applied to the taxon is the 1924 moniker Allium paniculatum subsp. breviscapum Litard. & Maire. Elevating the epithet breviscapum to species level is prevented by the existence of the 1885 name Allium breviscapum Stapf, hence the need for a new name, Allium litardierei J.-M.Tison in 2010.<ref>Tison, J.-M. 2010. Index synonymique de la flore d'Afrique du Nord 1: 403</ref>
