Distribution Thalictrum is most common in temperate portions of the northern hemisphere, where a few species are handsome enough to be cultivated. In a monograph of the American Thalictra and their Old World allies, Boivin (in Rhodora 46: 337. 1944.) treated 112 species and varieties. Only two species are reported from Panama.
