Jacobaea vulgaris[1]

Jacobaea is a genus of the tribe Senecioneae and the family Asteraceae. Its members used to be placed in the genus Senecio,[2] but have been separated into the segregate genus Jacobaea on the basis of molecular phylogenetics in order to maintain genera that are monophyletic.[3] The following species are recognised by The Plant List:[4]
