Two new and geographically isolated subspecies of Pulsatilla alpina (L.) Delarbre are described for the Alps: P. alpina subsp. austroalpina D. M. Moser and P. alpina subsp. schneebergensis D. M. Moser. Two new combinations are validated: P alpina subsp. cottianaea (Beauverd) D. M. Moser and P. alpina subsp. millefoliata (Bertol.) D. M. Moser. Pulsatilla alpina subsp. austroalpina grows in the Bergamese and Giudicarie Alps, the Dolomites, the Karawanken range and in the Julian Alps. Pulsatilla alpina subsp. cottianaea is found in a restricted area of the Cottian Alps, at the foot of Passo Moncenisio. Pulsatilla alpina subsp. millefoliata has a wider distribution and is found in the western Alps, the Graian Alps, the Maritime Alps and is also found in the Apennine. Pulsatilla alpina subsp. schneebergensis is described from the Schneeberg near Vienna and colonizes the northeastern ranges of the Austrian Alps, the Kalkalpen. Using biosystematic methods, these four subspecies are compared to the taxa already known from the Alps, P alpina (L.) Delarbre subsp. alpina, P alpina subsp. apiifolia (Scop.) Nyman, P alpina subsp. austriaca Aichele Schwegler.
