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:

The species is distributed in the southern East Siberia and the Far East. The species range is represented by a polygon covering the species localities, and by separate dots. The data of LE Herbarium and published maps of the range (Polozhij, Malyshev, 1994; Kharkevich, 1987) made the base for the range construction. The southern part of the polygon is restricted by the former state border of the USSR, the eastern one stretches along the coastline of the Sea of Japan. The northern border is drawn by means of generalization of all available data on the species distribution. Separate dots beyond the polygon borders indicate single, alien localities of the species.
