Geography: Amphi-Beringian (W): RFE ALA.

Notes: Elven and Murray: Several specimens (ALA) from the Seward Peninsula in western Alaska differ considerably from Poa glauca in, e.g., being very slender, with very small and narrow spikelets with shorter glumes and lemmas, and with glabrous rachilla. They may conform to P. arctostepporum and are provisionally entered as such.
