Arctic Sweet Coltsfoot (Petasites frigidus): Presumed to occur throughout the region. Collections in ARCTOS are primarily from the mainland (but spanning south to north), with only a single collection from Coronation Island that is not on the mainland or a nearby island. Whether this is indicative of a preference for more continental influence resulting in a less common occurrence on outer islands is not clear.
