  C. terebinthinus

Cymopterus terebinthinus var. albiflorus (Smoothshore Spring-parsley) (yellow)


This species has the broadest range of any LFP. In southern Utah, C. terebinthinus var. petraeus is frequently found with Lomatium parryi, and where this occurs it is obvious that L. parryi is the preferred LFP. There are several varieties of this plant.
