Ptilimnium Rafinesque. Bishopweed, Harperella.

Key to Ptilimnium

A genus of 5 species, annual and perennial herbs, temperate, of e. North America (Plunkett et al. 2018a). Ptilimnium should be re-split into two genera, Harperella and Ptilimnium; as Ptilimnium (s.s.) with compound leaves is more closely related to Tiedemannia (formerly Oxypolis with quill leaves) than it is to Harperella (Feist & Downie 2008; Feist et al. 2012).
