Storage roots enlarged 2-6 cm from corms, 1-3 cm. Leaves: basal 4-9, 33-60 cm × 10-20 mm, blade linear to elliptic, margins denticulate; cauline 4-5, blade long-acuminate, the proximal (4.3-)10-20 cm, frequently exceeding next node. Inflorescence 1, 0-3(-12)-branched, 55-105 cm, glabrous. Flowers nodding; tepals broadly elliptic, 12-19 mm, outer 2-3 mm wide, inner 5-8 mm wide; filaments inserted in covered pits, narrowly clavate, 5-9 mm; anthers connate, forming cone 4-5.5 mm, cone weakly to strongly tapered, 2-3 mm wide, apex broadly and deeply lobed, 1-1.5 mm; ovary 2-3.5 mm.

The anther cone of E. reflexa is longer and narrower, and the apex is narrower and minutely lobed.
