2n= 14 (2x). - Far East (N), Alaska, Canada. - Several reports.

Geography: Asian (NE) & North American: ALA (CAN).

Notes: Bromopsis ciliata reaches the Arctic along a part of Noatak River in northwestern Alaska (ALA, O; found 2003) and the Borderline Arctic at Winisk River (ca. 55N) on the southern side of Hudson Bay in Ontario (Scoggan 1978b; Porsild and Cody 1980; Pavlick and Anderton 2007). Scoggan (1978b) referred the Hudson Bay and other northern finds to Bromus canadensis, as different from B. ciliatus. Soreng et al. (2003) and Pavlick and Anderton (2007) synonymized Bromus canadensis with B. ciliatus.
