    • n picris A genus of composite plants, of the tribe Cichoriaceæ and subtribe Crepideæ, distinguished by its plumose pappus. There are about 25 species, in Europe, northern Africa, and temperate regions of Asia; one, P. hieracioides, the German biiterkraut, is also widely diffused throughout the northern hemisphere. All are erect, branching, bristly, and rough, with many alternate coarsely cut or entire leaves and bright-yellow flowers. Several species are cultivated for the flowers. P. echioides (often called Helminthia) is the British wayside weed oxtongue, so called from the shape of its leaves.
