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:

Within the former USSR, the species is distributed in the Far East (Ussuri area) and prefers dry mountain slopes. A published map of the species range (Kharkevich, 1989) served as the material for the range construction. The range is represented by a polygon, which embraces the species localities in the Ussuri area. In the east the polygon is limited by the coastline, in the south and west by the state border. The northern border of the polygon is drawn after published data (Kharkevich, 1989; Red Data Book..., 1988).
