Taenidia (Torrey & A. Gray) Drude. Yellow Pimpernel.

Contributed by D.B. Poindexter and A.S. Weakley

Key to Taenidia

A genus of 2 species, perennial herbs, of temperate e. North America. Since its naming, Taenidia montana has been traditionally separated into a monotypic genus, Pseudotaenidia; Cronquist (1982) has suggested that Pseudotaenidia be submerged in Taenidia. Cronquist's argument that the two monotypes are most closely related to one another is very possibly correct and has been generally followed since, but awaits further assessment with molecular methods. Plunkett et al. (2018) retained Pseudotaenidia and Taenidia as monotypic genera.
