Round-lobed Hepatica was previously included at USWildflowers.com as part of the Hepatica nobilis page, because both Round-lobed Hepatica and Sharp-lobed Hepatica have until recently been classified of varieties of that species. It is now generally accepted that they are included in the Anemone genus, as A. americana (Round-lobed Hepatica) and A. acutiloba (Sharp-lobed Hepatica.) Since most of the Hepatica nobilis page was covering Sharp-lobed Hepatica, that page has been converted to the Anemone acutiloba page.
