Currently Cenolophium contains one species, native to eastern Europe, west into northern Asia and all through Russia. Fine dissected foliage, semi-evergreen over winter, whilst in summer, typical of Apiaceae, white umbels of flowers. Unusually enjoying a more shady position than many other umbellifers.

As with all umbellifers, the heads of numerous tiny flowers provide a huge resource of nectar and pollen for a wide range of insects from tiny pollen-beetles to large hoverflies.
