Alaskan Wheatgrass (Elymus alaskanus): The Field Guide to Alaska Grasses does not show this species occurring in Southeast Alaska. Most records in ARCTOS of this species are of ssp. latiglumis which e-Flora BC indicates is synonymous with Arctic Wheatgrass (Elymus violaceus), which the field guide treats as a valid species.
