Notes: FNA3: "Ranunculus flammula var. ovalis , as currently understood, is heterogeneous. Many specimens from throughout the cited range scarcely differ from specimens of R . flammula var. reptans and perhaps should be included in the latter variety. Material from the Pacific slope, however, may be intermediate between R . flammula var. reptans and R . flammula var. flammula or may show various combinations of the distinguishing characteristics of the two. Biosystematic study of R . flammula as a whole will be needed for a meaningful treatment of these populations to be possible."
