Phytochemical data on the Leucanthemum atratum group Compositae .

The Leucathemum atratum group is a second group of daisies within this genus. The group is related to oxeye daisies (Leucanthemum vulgare Lam.) and includes two species, L. coronopifolium Vill. and L. ceratophylloides (All.) Nyman. This last species is further divided into two subspecies ceratophylloides and tenuiflorum. We used herbarium specimens from the Rome Herbarium (Herbarium Horti Romani) to analyze flavonoid content in the three taxonomic entities. We will discuss how the flavonoid profile in this group compares to that in the L. vulgare group, and the profile differences and similarities between the three taxa.
