360101c Caltha palustris var. sibirica Regel


Yana - Kolyma: Rare
South Chukotka: Rare
East Chukotka: Rare
Shrub Tundra: Rare
Bordering boreal or alpine areas: Rare


Geography: Asian (N/C): SIB RFE.

Notes: The very few and scattered localities mapped by Tolmachev (1971b) do not inspire confidence in var. sibirica as a consistent taxon in an arctic context. Its range is largely encompassed by that of subsp. radicans. Friesen (1993) synonymized var. sibirica with subsp. arctica (= subsp. radicans). Entered provisionally.
