Recorded from British Columbia by Merilees (2008) from Hardy Bay (Port Hardy) "just off Masterman Islands", collected June 7, 1996 (Forsyth 2013, Merillees2008). Merilees says "The presence of the Commarginal Bittersweet at Hardy Bay extends the range of this species southward from 54.8 degrees North to 50.45 degrees North, a distance of approximately 485 km, and provides the first record for this species from British Columbia and a new species for Canada."
