Notes: The main range of Puccinellia vahliana is in the non-Beringian regions. It is confirmed from northern Alaska eastwards across Canada, Greenland, Svalbard, and Franz Joseph Land, to Novaya Zemlya. Records from other areas and from non-arctic localities (e.g., the southern Yukon Territory: Cody 1996; Davis and Consaul 2007) should be re-checked. It is also reported from a few, very scattered localities in northern Siberia. In view of the polymorphy within its known range, these and records of related local Russian species should be critically compared with a larger material of P. vahliana.
