Other cases with stronger monosymmetry are: Sprekelia (Amaryllidaceae), in which, in addition to mere curvature, the perianth is conspicuously monosymmetric (Vochting, 1886); Haworthia and Chortolirion (Asphodelaceae) with bilabiate perianth (Smith & Van Wyk, 1998); Daubenya with three enlarged petals in basal flowers of the inflorescence, and Lachenalia (Hyacinthaceae) with a bilabiate perianth (Speta, 1998); Melasphaerula, Sparaxis, Chasmanthe and perhaps other Iridaceae-Ixioideae with bilabiate or otherwise monosymmetric perianth (Vogel, 1954; Goldblatt et al., 1998); Conanthera, Cyanella, Tecophilaea (Tecophilaeaceae) with strongly monosymmetric androecium (Simpson & Rudall, 1998).
Some genera on this list have mitigating conditions, such as succulence, that permit them to function as "temporary mesophytes" (e.g., many orchids; Hyacinthaceae).
