From Natural History of Southeast Alaska
V. ovalifolium in the Flora of North America, there seems to be a distinct difference between the plants thought of as this species and those of V. ovalifolium in the Sitka area, at least. This species tends to bloom later (after leaves are out) have much flowers which are distinctly less elongate, and fruit that is noticably darker (with a different flavor). Further investigations, including some genetic work, are on-going.
ARCTOS collection records primarily from the southern half of the region and in the immediate vicinity of Juneau.
