    A little unclear; for more detailed accuracy:
    Wild Carrot: Daucus carota subsp. carota
    Domesticated Carrot: Daucus carota subsp. sativus
    There is also Sea Carrot: Daucus carota subsp. gummifer, native to the coasts of W Europe.
    No! Wild Carrot is correct.

    Dang! From now one, when a client says "remove the Queen Anne's Lace", I'll simply stare blankly until they utter the magic phrase "wild carrot". As I am paid by the hour, that suits me fine. Funny thing, though: the entire time, we'll both know exactly what plant we're talking about. It is a pedant's nightmare; on this you have my sympathy. And latin still reigns supreme. Still, a google search of "Queen Anne's Lace" yield several pages of nothing but Daucus carota. My favourite is at the bottom of the first page: a link to the UBC botanical garden forum discussion on the "History of Queen Anne's Lace". I note your objection to the term on that thread as well: best of luck with the glorious, though Quixotic, struggle. It's a hard world for an anglocentric literalist, particularily when it comes to discussions of North American names. Lorries are trucks, bangers are sausages, and a tube is a subway. Don't they know they're wrong?
