Peucedanum (ancient Greek name). Umbelliferae. There are many views as to the limits of the genus Peucedanum; which is equivalent to saying that it has no natural limits. Bentham & Hooker made it a most complex group, comprising about one hundred Old World and New World species, and including such genera as Petroselinum, Anethum, Imperatoria, Polycyrtus, Tommasinia, Pastinaca, Tiedmannia, Lomatium. Coulter & Rose, American monographers ("Monograph of the North American Umbelliferae," United States Department of Agriculture, 1900), remove the American species and accept Rafinesque's genus Lomatium, where these species may be found (page 1903, Vol. IV). The parsnip has been included in this genus as P. sativum, Benth. & Hook., but is here kept distinct under Pastinaca. Various species of Peucedanum may be transferred to grounds in Europe, or the countries where they grow, but they are not known as horticultural subjects. CH
