Plants from the northern part of the range (including the type locality) are taller, with leaf blades 1×-pinnate, larger flowers, and ellipsoid-subglobose capsules, whereas those from the southern part are consistently shorter, with leaf blades 2×-pinnate (more deeply so than in Papaver radicatum subsp. radicatum or subsp. polare), smaller flowers, and oblong-obconic capsules. Because of these differences, D. Löve (1969) maintained P. radicatum subsp. kluanensis as distinct from the Utah (and presumably other southern) populations of the Papaver radicatum complex. Nevertheless, we agree with U. Rändel (1975) that the northern and southern populations are linked (in Colorado and Wyoming) by intermediate forms, and hence all are here included within P. radicatum subsp. kluanensis.
