Callianthemum coriandrifolium

Callianthemum coriandrifolium (NL: "Jagersbloem" / EN: ? / DE: Koriander-Schmuckblume / FR: Callianthème à feuilles de coriandre).
Callianthemum is a genus that consists of 24 species of little rhizomatous herbs from high mountains in Europe, Central Asia and East Asia in the Ranunculaceae family. The botanical name comes from the Greek, which means beautiful flower. Callianthemum coriandrifolium is 5-20 cm high, prostrate or ascending, hairless and has white flowers with a diameter of 1.5 - 2.5 cm Usually there is only one flower per stem. The typical habitat is very similar to that of Anemone baldensis (a species I indeed found in the same area): a rare plant community called "Elynetum myosuroides sesleterietosum variae". The species is probably a relic from the Tertiary.
