Ranunculus uncinatus

The petals soon fall, further complicating identification. The leaf below the flower in this photo is more slender than the stem and basal leaves. At the Park, Woodland Buttercup is most common in the lower Nisqually Valley where it grows in open woods.

Ranunculus uncinatus

The flowers of this tall buttercup are so small that it may require a close look to confirm their identity as a buttercup. The leaves are roundish and deeply cut into toothed lobes.
