Turgenia is a genus of flowering plants in the family Apiaceae, containing up to seven species.[1] The genus resembles Caucalis.[2] False carrot is a common name for plants in this genus.[3]

Varieties of Turgenia can be found in areas of Africa, Europe, temperate and tropical regions of Asia, and North America.[4][5]

The genus name of Turgenia is in honour of Alexander Turgenev (1784–1845), a Russian statesman and historian.[6] It was first described and published in Gen. Pl. Umbell. on page 59 in 1814.[1]
