Sphagnum austinii: Andrus says this species is common on hummock tops in Southeast Alaska.

Worley treated S. imbricatum, but according to the FNA entry on Sphagnum imbricatum, it is primarily an Asian species with a single collection from Northwestern Alaska. S. austinii seems like the most likely option for collections previously identified as S. imbricatum.
