Aphanes (parsley-piert) is a genus of around 20 species in the rose family ( Rosaceae), native to Europe, Asia and Australia. A 2003 study indicated that Aphanes may belong to the genus Alchemilla, commonly called lady's-mantle. They are slender, annual prostrate herbs, much-branched with deeply lobed leaves, pilose (covered with soft hair) and on short petioles. The tiny green to yellow flowers without petals grow in clusters in the denticulate leaflike stipules.
