Drymocallis is a genus of plants formerly (and sometimes still) included with the typical cinquefoils (Potentilla). It contains three species known or suspected to be protocarnivorous,[1] but more cinquefoils might eventually be moved here:[2][3]

DNA sequence data suggests they are more closely related to Chamaerhodos and Dasiphora than to species such as Potentilla reptans (creeping cinquefoil) which make up the bulk of Potentilla.[2]
