Northern Microseris (Microseris borealis): A west coast endemic. Some patterns of occurrence unclear. For example, common in many Kruzof Island muskegs, but absent from muskegs along the Sitka road system, even though distance is not great.

Well collected from southern outer islands, with a few more from southern inner islands. Two old collections from the Sitka area, and one more from the northern mainland along Icy Strait are the only others from the region (there are more from coastal areas north and west of the region). Probably under collected in part, but perhaps also prefers more hyper maritime climate?
