[According to Scoggan (1978), Puccinellia vahliana was known only from Port Burwell, nLab., 60° 25' N, but this area is now part of Nunavut. However, based on more recent data, the Panarctic Flora (Elven et al. 2011) states that nLabrador is included in the range of P. vahliana, which has a scattered distribution.]
