Hemieva ranunculifolia (Hook.) Raf.[HC2, JPM2]

Publication: Flora Telluriana 2: 70. [1837]

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA8: "Suksdorfia ranunculifolia is found in the Cascade, Rocky, and Siskiyou mountains of the Pacific Northwest, near sea level in coastal British Columbia, and on Vancouver Island."

"Suksdorfia has been split into three monospecific genera by different authors. The work of R. J. Gornall and B. A. Bohm (1980, 1984, 1985) emphasized the similarities of the species in supporting a single genus concept. More recent, molecular data (D. E. Soltis et al. 1993; L. A. Johnson and Soltis 1994) suggest that S. violacea is more closely related to species of Bolandra, that S. ranunculifolia is more closely related to species of Boykinia, and that the two North American species indeed should be placed into monospecific genera. The South American species is S. alchemilloides (Grisebach) Engler of northern Argentina and Bolivia."
