This buttercup is endemic to Sardinia. It grows on damp muddy soils, from 600 to approximately 1800 m. It is a characteristic species of Mediterranean temporary ponds, but in those of Sardinia it is present in two areas only: Marghine and Gennargentu Mountains. The fresh parts are poisonous (protoanemonine). The genus name, the Latin for 'little frog', was used since ancient times only for the aquatic species of the subgenus Batrachion, also a diminutive of the Greek 'batràchos' (frog); the species name refers to the leaves, which are rather similar to those of plants of the genus Cymbalaria. Flowering period: June to August.



Italian name(s): Ranuncolo a foglie di cimbalaria (Italia)
