Notes: Also Caltha palustris subsp. violacea needs some additional justification. Whereas it first was accepted as a species and later as a subspecies, Luferov (1995) included it in the synonymy of C. palustris together with var. sibirica but accepted both C. arctica and C. caespitosa as species. Sekretareva (1999, 2004) accepted a subspecies and reported it from the Arctic in the Russian Far East. Entered provisionally.
