Range Description

This plant is endemic to Norway and Sweden.

Its EOO in Sweden is 73 km (Commission of the European Communities 2009). The AOO for Sweden is probably 20 km. In Norway, the EOO is less than 5,000 km and the AOO is less than 500 km (Artsdatabanken 2010). As the numbers in Sweden are quite low, it is suspected that for both countries the EOO and AOO fall below the same threshold.

The species is globally known from six to seven locations in inner Troms and two in Sweden (Artsdatabanken 2010). The Norwegian localities are in Balsfjord (Sohtungaisi), Mlselv (Isdal Mountains) and Storfjord (Favresvarri, Markusfjellet, Paras, Gasskamus and Barras).
