- Schkuhr, Bot. Handb. 2: 324 (1796). Internal note: Type information lacking.
- Polygala hybrida DC., Prodr. 1: 325 (1824). Described from the Urals (Russia).
Geography: European (E) - Asian (N/C): SIB.
Notes: Peschkova (1996c) mapped Polygala hybrida to reach the Arctic in Taimyr and the Borderline Arctic along the lower Lena River. Polygala hybrida is closely related to and perhaps not specifically different from P. comosa Schkuhr. If they are merged, P. comosa is the priority name. Sekretareva (1999, 2004) included it as P. comosa and we have entered it as such.
