Last Record of Braya pilosa
Braya pilosa; circa 1800's
This herbarium sheet from the Royal Botanic Gardens Herbarium (K) in Kew, England, contains plants classified as Braya pilosa from three separate collections:
  • Richardson 1826
  • Sea Coast, Arctic - Richardson 1848
  • Arctic coast, west of Cape Bathurst - Captain Pullen 1850
This herbarium sheet is so congested that it is impossible to be certain which individuals belong to the various collections represented, but all of them are definitely members of the same taxon.
