343402 X Pucciphippsia czukczorum Tzvelev
East Chukotka: Rare
Southern Arcti Tundra: Rare
Shrub Tundra: Rare
- Tzvelev, Novosti Sist. Vyssh. Rast. 8: 76 (1971). Holotype (LE): Russian Far East: East Chukotka, Lavrentiy village, 08. Aug. 1969, leg. Afonina and Korobkov.
- Phippsia algida x Puccinellia ?wrightii.
22 (3x?). - Far East (N). - Zhukova et al. (1973); Yurtsev and Zhukova (1978).
Geography: Asian Beringian: RFE.
Notes: Elven and Solstad: Tzvelev (1976) suggested Puccinellia wrightii to be the propable Puccinellia parent, whereas Tzvelev (PAF proposal) suggested that P. tenella might be the parent. X Pucciphippsia czukczorum, in fact, has well developed anthers (field observation by us in 2005) and abundant production of well-formed fruits (specimens in LE and O). If the nearly triploid count is right, this fertility is strange, but some stabilization must have taken place. In morphological appearance, X Pucciphippsia czukczorum resembles X P. vacillans and differs from both Phippsia spp. and Puccinellia spp.
