Sclerocalymma Aellen, is closely related to A. rosea Linnaeus and A. tatarica. It occurs in the Pamir mountains and EC Asia, and was reported by Grubov (Rast. Tsentral. Azii 2: 32. 1966) from N and W Xinjiang (Shache near the Yarkant river and other localities).
Atriplex altaica Sukhorukov (Feddes Repert. 111: 176. 2000), also a representative of A. sect.
