The buttercup species "Ranunculus acris" is already in the NLNature database but I don't think the leaves on my observation match the images I've seen of Ranunculus acris. Is this observation a subspecies or different variety of Ranunculus acris or is it a different species in the Ranunculus genus? Does anyone know more about what this might be? It is growing in some long grass at the edge of our yard.

Nathalie, the Rooms Natural Hostory collections manager thinks it is a Ranunculus repens L. So, yes a different species.

Thanks Lessa!  I love learning about the things I see.  I'm not any good at doing my own ID's, so it's great to have feedback from people like you.  Your post led me to look up Ranunculus repens L., which in turn led me to discover the VASCAN database. That seems to be a great resource for Canadian plants.  Thanks again, Mardon
