Geography: Amphi-Beringian: RFE ALA.

Notes: Elven and Murray: Alopecurus stejnegeri is a morphologically distinct North Pacific plant that occurs in coastal regions but almost entirely within the range of A. borealis, with few observed intermediates. We consider it a well characterized species present along the Bering Sea coasts and mountains north to the Chukchi and Seward peninsulas. Two isolated occurrences are documented in the interior mountains, surrounded by A. borealis, in the Borderline Arctic in the southern Brooks Range in northern Alaska (the Wiseman area, ALA) and in the non-arctic Alaska Range (Dry Creek, CAN).
