342615b Poa nemoralis subsp. lapponica (Prokudin) Tzvelev


Northern Fennoscandia: Rare
Polar Ural - Novaya Zemlya: Scattered
Shrub Tundra: Rare
Bordering boreal or alpine areas: Scattered


Geography: European (N): NOR RUS.

Notes: Elven: According to Tzvelev (1964b), subsp. lapponica differs from Poa nemoralis s. str. in smooth spikelet rachis. Tzvelev's hybrid hypotheses for it - as P. nemoralis x palustris or P. glauca x nemoralis - are probable since similar hybrids with similar characters are frequent throughout Fennoscandia, but without assigned rank or names.

Tzvelev: Subspecies lapponica is well distinguished from typical P. nemoralis in habitus and ecology.

Elven: Subspecies lapponica is entered provisionally.
