Ranunculus omiophyllus whole Ranunculus omiophyllus close

This plant prefers slow moving streams and ditches on acidic soils. It is very western in its distribution being present throughout Wales, the south west of England and north west England but very rarely found in the south east, east or Scotland. In Ireland it is only common in the south. The leaf lobes are more distinct than in R. hederaceus (Ivy-leaved Crowfoot) and the sepals are reflexed.
