2n= (1) 10 (2x). - Europe (Balkan). - Felber (1987, seven localities).
(2) 20 (4x). - Europe, Russia, Far East, Canada. - Numerous reports, hundreds of counts.

Geography: European: NOR* GRL*.

Notes: Anthoxanthum odoratum s. str. reaches the Arctic only as a not very persistent adventive. The diploid A. odoratum from the Balkan (Felber 1987) should perhaps be reconsidered or at least closely checked morphologically.
