Arnoglossum

provided by wikipedia EN

Arnoglossum is a North American genus of plants in the sunflower family, described as a genus in 1817.[1][3][4] Common name Indian plantain despite not being closely related to the common plantain (Plantago spp.) nor to the cooking plantain (Musa × paradisiaca)

Arnoglossum is a member of the tribe Senecioneae which has been undergoing extensive revisions in recent years. Many of the species now in the genus were formerly classified in other genera such as Cacalia, Mesadenia, and Senecio. The remaining species are all native to North America (Ontario and eastern United States).[5]

The name Arnoglossum is from the Greek word "arnos" meaning lamb, and "glossum" meaning tongue and is the ancient name for some species of Plantago.[1]
