Beachhead Iris (Iris setosa Pall. ex Link)

Page contents


POWO reports this species as native to British Columbia (and Alaska and the Yukon), but netiher BONAP nor E-Flora BC report it as occurring in BC. GBIF however shows numerous herbarium records in BC; we have not examined why these records might have been rejected and have held off on constructing this map until we figure out what is going on with these discrepancies. We also noted that other sources describe this species as occuring in eastern Canada and suspect that there may be a taxonomic split that we have not yet examined, with this name previously being used to refer to populations now treated separately.
