Key to Tasmanian Dicots

Ranunculus amphitrichus (formerly known as R. inundatus & R. rivularis; Ranunculaceae) 1:13

Ranunculus amphitrichus (River Buttercup) is a native aquatic species that grows in still or slow moving, shallow fresh water ponds and streams throughout Tasmania. The plant forms rosettes that are joined by stolons, and the leaves rise above these with the blades floating on the surface or in the water column. The leaves often have long petioles (to 15cm) and the blades are round in outline, but deeply divided into narrow lobes. The flowers are golden yellow and 10-15mm wide.
