Date of creation:



1:20 000 000.

Accuracy of the map:

The map is based on data of a 1:40 000 000 scale map, corrected according to herbarium materials.

Basic contents:

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

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 polygons are based on generalized information from published sources and herbarium specimens.

Method of the map construction:

The species is distributed in the North China, Japan, Korea and the Russian Far East. The northern and eastern parts of the species range are situated in the former USSR. The range is represented by two polygons, covering a set of the species localities in the middle part of the Amur River basin, and in the southern Primorie. The southern borders of both polygons coincide with the state border of the former USSR. Factual data on the species distribution from VLAD, WIR, and LE Herbaria, and a published map of the species range (Kharkevich, 1989) served the material for the range construction.
