Serratula is a genus[3] of plants in the thistle tribe within the daisy family native to Eurasia.[4][5] Plumeless saw-wort is a common name for plants in this genus.[6] Serratula as traditionally defined contains at least two groups: one of which is basal within the subtribe Centaureinae and one of which is derived; the former group can be moved to the genus Klasea.[7]

Various species contain apigenin, luteolin, quercetin, other flavonoids and ecdysteroids.[8]

Numerous species are now considered members of other genera:
