Wikipedia Abstract

Platycarpha is a genus of South African plants dandelion subfamily within the daisy family.Recent studies have suggested splitting Platycarpha into two genera, Platycarpha and Platycarphella. Further work remains to be done to resolve this.The name Platycarpha is derived from two Greek words, platys "broad" and karphos "a chip of straw or wood, a scale, a dry stalk". The name was first used by Christian Friedrich Lessing in 1831. The type species is Platycarpha glomerata.
