Mitella Linnaeus. Miterwort.

Key to Mitella

As traditionally circumscribed, a genus of about 20 species, herbs, of cold temperate e. North America, w. North America, and e. Asia. Soltis (2007), Okuyama, Pellmyr, & Kato (2008), and Folk & Freudenstein (2014) indicate that Mitella as currently circumscribed is polyphyletic and is likely to be divided; our species will remain in a narrowly circumscribed Mitella of 2-3 species.
