Aphanes

Aphanes (Parsley-piert) is a genus in the rose family, Rosaceae, native to Europe, Asia and Australia. A study from 2003 (see Rosoideae) indicates that Aphanes may belong to the genus Alchemilla, commonly called Lady's-mantle. They are slender, annual prostrate herbs, much-branched with deeply lobed leaves, pilose (covered with soft hair) and on short petioles. The tiny green to yellow flowers without petals grow in clusters in the denticulate leaflike stipules. [more]

At least 44 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Aphanes.
