Arnoseris is a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the daisy family.[2][3][4]

The only known species is Arnoseris minima, native to Europe, Morocco, and the Middle East; naturalized in parts of northeastern North America (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Maine, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan).[5][6] Common names in the United States: dwarf nipplewort or lamb-succory.[7] Common names in the British Isles: lamb's succory.[8]

It has a maximum height of 30 cm, is herbaceous and does not spread vegetatively.[9]

The species became extinct across the British Isles in 1971.[10] There was an attempt to reintroduce the species, and there has been one recent sighting in England.[11]

Arnoseris minima is an annual weed of cornfields and fallow fields, favouring infertile, sandy, acidic soils.[12]

The word 'succory' is an anglicization of the French 'cichorie' (chicory). The 'lamb' in the name denotes that it is a chicory only suitable for animal consumption.[13] The genus Arnoseris comes from the Ancient Greek 'arnos seris' meaning 'sheep's endive'. The species epithet minima means 'small'.[14]
Secondary metabolites

Arnoseris minima is a source of the simple coumarin aesculetin and the flavonoids luteolin, luteolin 7-O-β-D-glucoside, luteolin 4'-O-β-D-glucoside, and 3-O-methylquercetin.[15]
