360905 Anemone calva Juz.


Anabar - Onenyo: Rare
Kharaulakh: Rare
Shrub Tundra: Rare
Bordering boreal or alpine areas: Rare

Geography: Asian (NE): SIB.

Notes: Elven and Solstad: Anemone calva crosses the arctic boundary on both sides of the lower Lena River northwards from the Chekurovka area where it is frequent (Elven and Solstad in 2004, O). This is a Verkhoyansk Mountains-Lena River plant strongly overlapping geographically with A. sibirica. It occurs in sympatry with A. sibirica along the Lena River, sometimes within a few tens of meters, but with a site difference (A. calva in damper or temporarily flooded sites). No transitional forms were observed. In this region, they behave as two independent species.
