Treatment appears in FNA Volume 17. Treatment on page 525. Mentioned on page 526.

Racemes: bracts glabrous. Flowers: calyx glabrous. 2n = 16.

Discussion

In addition to its glabrous inflorescence, E. Hultén (1968) contrasted the shorter subtending floral bracts in the upper part of the inflorescence of subsp. langsdorffii to the longer, more prominent bracts of subsp. arctica. While some specimens can be clearly distinguished using bract size, many others cannot.
