Geography: Asian (NE) - amphi-Beringian - Cordilleran: SIB RFE ALA CAN.

Notes: Rebristaya: I prefer to accept Ranunculus grayi at level of species due to distinct morphological differences and the long distance between the ranges of R. grayi (Beringian Arctic and Cordilleran) and R. gelidus Kar. & Kit. (central Asian, described from the Alatau).
