Basic contents:

Vector map consisting of 1 base and 3 thematic layers. The distribution area of the species is shown by polygons and points.

Accuracy of qualifier:

Points represent locations from which L.E. herbarium materials were taken and locations mentioned in published references. The polygon is based on generalized information on species distribution.

Mapping procedure:

The species distribution area was determined using species locations reported by the L.E. herbarium and published maps from Malyshev & Peshkova (1990), Grossheim (1939) and Shelyag-Sosonko (1977). Within the European part of the former USSR, the species is distributed throuhgout the steppe and forest-steppe zone. In Ural and in Western Siberia, the species occurs in the forest-steppe and mixed-wood zones. In addition, the species is distributed throughout the Caucasus, except Colchis and the Kura lowlands.
