410705a Rumex aquaticus subsp. aquaticus
Northern Fennoscandia: Rare
Taimyr - Severnaya Zemlya: Persistent (Adventive)
Shrub Tundra: Rare
Bordering boreal or alpine areas: Frequent
Geography: European - Asian (W): NOR RUS? SIB*.
Notes: We assign the swamp, mire, and seashore plants of northeastern Norway to subsp. aquaticus. They connect morphologically to the more southern Scandinavian and European plants, whereas they differ markedly from the more upland plants in northeasternmost Norway that we now very provisionally assign to subsp. protractus. We assume that subsp. aquaticus (in this meaning) reaches also the Murman area as native as it is frequent along the seashores east to the border on the Norwegian side. The Russian plants may have been assigned to subsp. protractus, in which case the position of the very aberrant upland Norwegian plants should be reconsidered (see below).
