Seed face plane. Carpophore entire or 2-cleft to base. [more]
Anisotome is a genus of flowering plant in the Apiaceae, with 16 species. It is endemic to New Zealand. [more]
Aphanopleura is a genus of flowering plant in the Apiaceae, with 6 species. It is endemic to Asia. [more]
Apium (Celery and Marshwort) is a genus of about 20 species of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, with a subcosmopolitan distribution in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia. They are medium to tall biennial or perennial plants growing wet ground (marshes and salt marshes). They grow up to 1 m high and have pinnate to bipinnate leaves and small white flowers in compound umbels. [more]
Athamantha, or Athamanta, is a genus of flowering plant in the Apiaceae. It is endemic to southern Europe and northern Africa. [more]
Bunium is a species of flowering plant in the Apiaceae, with 45 to 50 species. [more]
Bupleurum is a very large genus of plants of the Apiaceae family, represented by 185 to 195 species. [more]
Carum is a genus of about 20 species of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, native to temperate regions of the Old World. The most important species is Caraway (C. carvi), the seeds of which are widely used as a culinary spice. [more]
Chamaesciadium flavescens is a species of flowering plant in the Apiaceae, the only species of the genus Chamaesciadium. It is endemic to Southwest Asia and the Caucasus. [more]
Cicuta, commonly known as water hemlock, is a small genus of four species of highly poisonous plants in the family Apiaceae. They are perennial herbaceous plants which grow up to 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) tall, having distinctive small green or white flowers arranged in an umbrella shape (umbel). Plants in this genus may also be referred to as cowbane or poison parsnip. Cicuta is native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, mainly North America and Europe, typically growing in wet meadows, along streambanks and other wet and marshy areas. These plants bear a close resemblance to other members in the family Apiaceae and may be confused with a number of other edible and poisonous plants. The common name hemlock may also be confused with poison hemlock (Conium maculatum). [more]
Cryptotaenia is a genus of two species of herbaceous perennial plants, native to North America and eastern Asia, growing wild in moist, shady places. [more]
Foeniculum is a genus of fewer than half a dozen species, in the family Apiaceae (Umbelliferae). [more]
Ligusticum is a genus of about 25 species of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, native to cool temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Its name is believed to derive from the Italian region of Liguria. [more]
Oenanthe is the name of two genera: [more]
Petroselinum (parsley) is a genus of two species of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, native to western and southern Europe and northern Africa. They are bright green hairless biennial herbaceous plants, rarely annual plants. In the first year, they form a rosette of pinnate to tripinnate leaves and a tap root used as a food store over the winter, in the second year growing a flowering stem up to 1 m tall with sparser leaves and umbels of white or pinkish to yellowish-green flowers. [more]
Herbs, perennial, rarely biennial or annual. Root fibrous or a taproot. Stems erect, branching, base without fibrous remnant sheaths. Basal leaves petiolate, sheathing at base; blade 13-ternate, 14-pinnate or ternate-13-pinnate, sometimes simple. Cauline leaves often heteromorphic. Inflorescence branching, umbels terminal and lateral; bracts and bracteoles present or absent, usually linear, apex entire; rays few to numerous. Calyx teeth usually obsolete, sometimes conspicuous, lanceolate, minute. Petals white, rarely purple, glabrous or hairy abaxially. Stylopodium conic or low-conic, rarely depressed; styles short or long, spreading or reflexed (best observed in young or mature fruit). Fruit cordate-ovoid or oblong-ovoid, slightly laterally compressed, constricted at the commissure, glabrous or variously hairy; ribs 5, filiform, sometimes obscured by the indumentum; vittae 13(4) in each furrow, 24(8) on commissure. Seed face plane, rarely slightly concave. Carpophore 2-fid or 2-parted. [more]
Herbaceous, perennials, sometimes woody at base. Taproot conic, caudex woody, undivided or branched. Stem terete, rarely hollow. Leaf blade 1-3-pinnate or pinnately decompound, rarely ternately dissected or simple and undivided. Umbels compound; bracts few or absent; rays few to many; bracteoles few to many, lanceolate or linear, bases often connate, scarious or scarious-margined; umbellules few- to many-flowered; pedicels short or long, occasionally subsessile. Calyx teeth obsolete or minute. Petals white or yellow, suborbicular or oblong, emarginate, apex broadly or narrowly inflexed, abaxially often pubescent or hirsute. Stylopodium conic or depressed. Fruit ovoid or ellipsoid, moderately or slightly dorsally compressed, glabrous or variously hairy; ribs prominent, rounded or keeled, subequal, marginal ribs sometimes narrowly winged; vittae 1-2(-4) in each furrow, 2 (rarely 4-8) on commissure.

Basal leaves 23-pinnate-ternate/pinnatisect; ultimate segments ovate, narrowly lanceolate to filiform, sessile or short-petiolulate, base usually broad-cuneate or truncate, margin sparingly irregularly serrate, dentate or entire, glabrous on both surfaces. Umbels compound, loose, terminal and lateral; peduncles slender; bracts and bracteoles absent, rarely present, linear; rays few, slender. Calyx teeth obsolete. Petals white, obovate, apex narrow, inflexed, abaxially sparsely scaberulous. Stylopodium conic; styles short, divaricate. Fruit ovoid-globose or broadly ellipsoid, base rounded or cordate, slightly flattened laterally, nearly round in cross section, white strigose or papillose; ribs 5, filiform, prominent to scarcely so; vittae (1) 23 in each furrow, 26 on commissure.
