Species

Aureolaria, with the common name false foxgloves, is a genus of 8 species, native to North America.[1][2]

Aureolaria plants are hemiparasitic, which is a character that in part describes the Orobanchaceae.

Until recently the genus was aligned with members of the family Scrophulariaceae. As a result of numerous molecular phylogenetic studies based on various chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) loci, it was shown to be more closely related to members of the Orobanchaceae.[3]
