Jepson Flora Project: Jepson Interchange for California Floristics    
Poa arctica R. Br.
Initial Editorial Analysis 29 Jun 2005
Source of Report for California Rosatti SMASCH notes: Evidently not in Munz, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], yet indicated for California by Kartesz.
Initial Editorial Comments indicated for California in K, but no closer to California than NV (otherwise widespread in w & n NA) in Kartesz & Meacham; in no way mentioned in Munz, Munz Supplement, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; one record in SMASCH, UC1576748 (Dean W. Taylor 8125, 26 Aug 1982, Bighorn Lake, Mono Co.).
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 27 Jun 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
