Heads up: Some or all of the identifications affected by this split may have been replaced with identifications of Anemoneae. This happens when we can't automatically assign an identification to one of the output taxa. Review identifications of Anemone 51242

Taxonomic Split 55691 (Committed on 2019-10-05)

This taxon split of Anemone follows the recent revisions of Anemone s. l., by Mosyakin et al. and others. Many of the genera are already well known such as Hepatica or Pulsatilla.

Knowltonia is group that has its distribution mainly in the southern hemisphere, but some species are found as far north as Mexico.

Anemonoides is a genus where many rhizomatous woodland species like Anemone nemorosa can be found.

Eriocapitella is the genus that was erected for the well known and often cultivated Japanese/Chinese Anemones and related species.

split into


I agree with the taxon split in general, but Omalocarpus is in the family Sapindaceae and Keiskea is also a synonym of the genus Collinsonia (Lamiaceae)

"If some or all of the outputs lack atlases, or if atlases overlap for a given record, identifications will be replaced with identifications of the nearest common ancestor taxon. "

-> that sounds like it could create a taxonomic chaos...

Thanks, I swapped Keiskea into Collinsonia and removed it and Omalocarpus from this taxon change.

The common ancestor of the output taxa is now Anemoneae, which seems correct. Good to split?
