The genus is found almost everywhere, but the greatest number of species, about 200, are found in South America. There are two species in the USSR: A. pedatum in the Far East and A. capillus-veneris in the Caucasus, the Crimea, and Middle Asia. A. capillus-veneris is a tender ornamental with double or triple pinnatifid, delicate leaves on long, dark brown petioles. This species and many others are grown in rooms and greenhouses.
