Cryptobotany (Greek κρυπτός, kryptos, "hidden" + botany; roughly, "study of hidden plants") is the study of plant forms that have eluded scientific analysis and classification, and particularly specimens of such forms that are considered folkloric or legendary. The field is a counter-part to cryptozoology (animals) and cryptomycology (fungus).
