Thalictrum speciosissimum.

See the note below.


Perrisia bragancae.


The species is described from Portugal, galling “Thalictrum glaucum”. The name of that plant is interpreted by Skuhravá ao as Th. flavum. However, according to the Plant List (2014), glaucum is a synonym of speciosissumum. Moreover, flavum does not occur in Portugal, contrary to speciosissumum, and Houard disscusses flavum and speciosissimum separately.
