Chrysopsis (golden asters), are plants in the family Asteraceae native to the southern and eastern United States. All the species are found in Florida, although some are found in other states as well.[2][3][4]

These are annual and perennial herbs bearing daisy-like flower heads with yellow disc florets and usually yellow ray florets. Some species formerly classified in this genus are now included in other genera: Heterotheca, Pityopsis, Stenotus, Ionactis, Aster, Eucephalus, Erigeron, Machaeranthera, Croptilon, Xanthisma, Oclemena, Bradburia, Oxypappus, Arnica, Helichrysopsis.[1]

Golden asters are often used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Schinia petulans (which feeds exclusively on Chrysopsis subulata).
