2n= 76 (4x). - Canada (Manitoba). - Löve and Ritchie (1966); Löve and Löve (1982a). See Argus (1997).
Not included: A report of 2n = 38 (2x) from North America (Löve 1954b, an untrustworthy paper). For a report of 2n = 57 (3x) from North America (Suda and Argus 1969a), see notes.

Geography: North American (N): CAN.

Notes: Argus: The chromosome number of Salix pedicellaris is uncertain. The diploid and tetraploid counts referred above are unvouchered. The triploid count (Suda and Argus 1969a) is based on a 'typical' specimen of S. pedicellaris but it was growing in a hybrid swarm of S. pedicellaris and the tetraploid S. athabascensis Raup.
