Fl. Bor.-Amer. 1: 65, plate 17A. 1830
Phenology: Flowering Jul–Aug.
Habitat: Sandy, calcareous seashores
Elevation: 0-10 m
Of conservation concern.
Braya pilosa is distinguished from other members of the genus by a combination of large flowers, broad fruits, and exceptionally long styles. This striking Braya was known from only three pre-1850 collections until the type locality near Cape Bathurst in the Northwest Territories was rediscovered in 2004. The species is apparently restricted to the type locality, where it is found on bare patches of soil disturbed by caribou hooves. Preliminary DNA sequence analyses indicate that it is most closely related to B. thorild-wulffii.
