Type Species

Lotus uliginosus or Greater Bird's-foot Trefoil is a member of the Pea Family (Fabaceae). It occurs in damp locations throughout Europe. As the common name suggests, it is a larger plant than the related Common Bird's-foot Trefoil, growing to 20-80 cm tall, with larger (particularly broader) leaflets 10-25 mm long and 10-20 mm broad. The flowers are very similar.

Other names include the synonym Lotus pedunculatus, and the common names Greater Birdsfoot trefoil, Big Trefoil, Large Bird's-foot Trefoil.
