  1. Scopolia

    Scopolia is a genus of five species of flowering plants in the family Solanaceae, native to Europe and Asia. The genus is named after Giovanni Scopoli, a Tyrolean naturalist. Scopolia carniolica is a creeping perennial plant, with light green leaves and pale yellow to dull red flowers. It is sometimes cultivated as a decorative plant. Scopolia's extract is used in at least one commercial stomach remedy. The extract is an anti-spasmodic in low doses and may be used to relax smooth muscle tissue or prevent motion-sickness induced nausea; in higher doses it is a poisonous narcotic having hallucinogenic and memory-inhibiting effects. Other alkaloids found in Scopolia carniolica include cuscohygrine and hyoscyamine. Alkaloids found in Scopolia tangutica include hyoscyamine, scopolamine, anisodamine, and anisodine. Alkaloids found in Scopolia atropoides include atroscine. The coumarin phenylpropanoids umbelliferone and scopoletin have been isolated from the roots of Scopolia japonica. The related species Atropanthe sinensis is sometimes included in Scopolia as Scopolia sinensis.
