620103 Polygala comosa Schkuhr


Taimyr - Severnaya Zemlya: Rare
Kharaulakh: Present only in the Borderline Arctic
Shrub Tundra: Rare

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.
