|Flowers of Cerinthe major|
Cerinthe is a poorly studied genus of vascular plants in the family Boraginaceae, known as "honeyworts". The genus is characterised by a calyx made up of separate, rather than fused, sepals, a tubular corolla, and the schizocarpic fruit that divides into two parts at maturity, unlike most members of the family, where the fruit splits into four nutlets. The genus has a circum-Mediterranean distribution, ranging from the Irano-Turanian region in the east to Morocco in the west.
