Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of 1 basic and 3 subject layers. The species range is represented by a polygon and dots.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

The dots represent information on the species localities according to LE herbarium materials (1) and published sources (2), the polygon - generalized information on the species distribution.

Method of the map construction:

The range map is based on coordinates according to the herbarium materials and the database of WIR, and published maps (Sokolov et al., 1977; Tolmachev, 1974). In the west, the species range reaches the basins of the Mezen, the Northern Dvina, the Sukhona and the Vetluga Rivers. The northern border of the range is situated in the lower course of the Yenisei; its extreme northeastern point is located in the upper course of the Aldan. The eastern border stretches from Vitim Uplands along Stanovoi Range in Transbaikal area and through Buryat-Mongolia to the upper Onon River; the southern border stretches through the Sayans and tributaries of the upper Yenisei, then along the forest zone limits to the Southern Ural and far northwestw to Kazan.
