Panarctic Flora


340504 Leymus innovatus (Beal) Pilg.


Geography: American Beringian - North American.

Notes: Tzvelev: Subspecies rank is possible for Leymus velutinus but it can be set to species rank. I have seen very few specimens from North America.

Elven and Murray: We enter two subspecies (as did Barkworth 2007a) but keep the option open that species rank might be the more appropriate, based on a ploidy difference associated with some morphological characters. However, Barkworth (2007a) reported only quantitative differences.
