Two species of ArrheniaA. auriscalpium and A. lobata – are common in tundra settings, including recently glaciated areas, burned peat and alpine zones with sandy or peaty soils, and moss cover. A. lobata is an obligate parasite of wet mosses on the Arctic tundra, but also occurs farther south in Sphagnum bogs. This species has a bipolar distribution, occurring in the Antarctic and the Arctic.
