3611 Oxygraphis Bunge

Notes: Elven, Murray, Rebristaya, and Yurtsev: Many authors include Oxygraphis glacialis in Ranunculus as R. kamtschaticus (e.g., Jalas and Suominen 1989; Tutin and Akeroyd 1993b; Whittemore 1997). The treatment of Tutin and Akeroyd is made suspect by their grouping of this species closely with Ranunculus glacialis in sect. "Crymodes" (this section name misapplied as it pertains to Beckwithia andersonii), an affinity every botanist familiar with the two species in question would disagree with. We accept Oxygraphis.
