Aphanes (Parsley-piert) is a genus in the rose family, Rosaceae, native to Europe, Asia and Australia. A study from 2003 (see Rosoideae) indicates 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. Field Parsley-piert is sometimes used as a herbal remedy against kidney and bladder calculi. It acts as a potent diuretic and antilithic.
