Basic contents:

The map is a vector file consisting of a polygon and dots. Point localities of the species are represented by dots; the area of possible species distribution is represented by the polygon.

Accuracy of the qualifier:

Dark dots represent information on the species localities from herbarium specimens, the rest (light) dots represent data from published sources; the polygon is based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map construction:

In the former USSR, the species is distributed in Lower Zeya, Bureya and Ussuri floristic districts, and prefers riversides, meadows and shrubberies. The species range is represented by a polygon, which includes the species localities in the basins of the Amur, Zeya and Bureya Rivers. The polygon is constructed by means of generalization of available factual data on the species distribution in LE Herbarium and a published map of the species range (Kharkevich, 1989). The southern and eastern borders of the polygon coincide with the state border, the northern and western ones are based on generalized factual data.
