Ranunculus gmelinii R. Schipper

Edges of rivers, streams, lakes, and ponds (in water and on banks); pools in bogs and cedar swamps. Very local southward.

The submersed parts are sometimes said to be more pubescent than the aerial parts, which would be a remarkable reversal of the usual situation in aquatic plants if true. Certainly in our material, submersed parts are glabrous, while terrestrial parts may sometimes be ± strigose.
