Herniaria is a genus of flowering plants in the family Caryophyllaceae known generally as ruptureworts.[1] They are native to Eurasia and Africa but several species have been widely introduced to other continents. These are flat, mat-forming annual herbs.[2] The genus gets its scientific and common names from the once-held belief that species could be used as an herbal remedy for hernias.[3]
