Sochava There are numerous transitions between it and Rh. aureum. Indeed, tall forms (up to 1 m) with falling scales are found up to northern Okhotia (Luzhin Bay). However, no typical Rh. hypopitys, there are no transitional forms either on Kamchatka, or on the Kuril Islands and Sakhalin Island, where there are all conditions suitable for them. Thus, this species in Russia has a very specific range, the border of which, however, is somewhat vague on the mainland. " Konstantin Cherezov
