Amianthium A. Gray. Fly-poison.

A monotypic genus, an herb of temperate e. North America. Zomlefer et al. (2001) confirm that Amianthium should be treated as a monotypic genus. Amianthium has a chromosome number of 2n=32 (Zomlefer & Smith 2002). Like other members of the family, it produces very toxic alkaloids.
