The floating marshpennywort is a species with a wide distribution, now almost cosmopolitan in tropical and subtropical regions, reported as a weed from Tuscany, Lazio and Sardinia (since a long time no longer found in Campania and Calabria). It grows in damp sites, especially along ditches and on the edge of marshes, on muddy, wet soils, usually along the coast. The species is sporadic in the central belt of the Sardinian temporary ponds. The genus name derives from the Greek 'hydor' (water) and 'kotyle' (small bowl), alluding to the habitat and to the concave, rounded leaves of some species; the species name in Latin means 'buttercup-like'. Flowering period: April to July.



Italian name(s): Idrocotile ranunculoide (Italia), Soldinella reniforme (Italia)
