 This attractive winter growing bulb is distributed in the western and Karoo parts of South Africa. It is found at a number of localities around Oudtshoorn

The plants are often confused with Albuca spiralis,  Albuca bruce-bayeri., Albuca namaquensis

Unlike  Albuca spiralis, the apex of the inner flowers tepals are hooded, while in Albuca spiralis they are hinged,. In the case of Albuca bruce-bayeri the leaves coil upwards and not sideways. Albuca namaquensis has smooth leaves while both Albuca viscosa and A spiralis have viscose leaves. There are also other differences.
