    Distribution of subspecies in Greece yet imperfectly known due to undercollection. Subsp. verna was doubtfully given for mainland Greece (Jalas & Suominen 1989: 186, Athanasiadis & Drossos 1990: 100, Strid & Tan 2002: 60) but the records need confirmation. Separation of the genera Ficaria and Ranunculus is corroborated by molecular data (see, e.g., Paun & al. 2005).
