Lomatium canbyi is a species of flowering plant in the carrot family known by the common name Canby's biscuitroot (lúukš in the Sahaptin language and qeqíit in the Nez Perce language). It is native to the Pacific Northwest of the United States and northeast California, where it grows in sagebrush-covered plateau habitat and barren flats.

It is a perennial herb growing up to about 25 centimeters tall. It lacks a stem, producing erect leaves and inflorescences from ground level. The leaves are up to 15 centimeters long and divided into many highly divided leaflets. The inflorescence is topped with a dense umbel of whitish flowers.

The Klamath use the roots of this plant as food.
