of the Gulf Stream to northwestern Europe, thence eastward in the Arctic to the Murman Sea.
This form merges into H. c. alutaceus around Cape Breton Island, Newfoundland, Greenland
and Iceland, continuing as that form through Davis and Hudson straits and into Hudson Bay;
westerly it is found along edges of the Beaufort, Chukchi and East Siberian seas, southward
through the Bering Sea, on the east to Puget Sound, and on the west to the Sea of Japan and
East China Sea.” [Williams, 1984, p. 310].
