37. Hypochaeris L. (cat’s ear)

Contributed by David J. Bogler and George Yatskievych

Fifty to 60 species, most diverse in South America, but also native to Europe, Asia, Africa.

The generic name has been spelled Hypochoeris in some of the older literature, based on the inconsistent spellings adopted by Linnaeus in his various publications (Harriman, 1980).
