25. Limnosciadium Mathias and Constance

Two species, central U.S.

Mathias and Constance (1941a) segregated Limnosciadium from the superficially similar Cynosciadium based on differences in leaf division patterns and details of fruit morphology. They cited these genera as an example of convergent vegetative morphologies in the Apiaceae. Steyermark (1963) disagreed with their conclusions, treating only a single genus, but most botanists since then have accepted the concept that, within the family, subtle differences in the plane of fruit compression and the shape of the carpophore can provide important clues to generic relationships and classification.
