Notes

Often divided into R. stellatus s.str. (basal leaves dentate, radiating phyllaries usually 8, long) and R. edulis (basal leaves with large suborbicular terminal lobe, radiating phyllaries 5-6, shorter). When typical they are strikingly different, but there are many intermediates and no geographical separation, hence varietal rank seems to be appropriate.
