Rubus arcticus ssp acaulis

June 20 2008
'moose skull lake' Mendenhall. Yukon

Rubus arcticus ssp acaulis
Rosaceae Rose family
In one source i find its common name is Nagoon berry.

I don't have a photo from the berry yet, it's a raspberry and tasty it is.

Rubus - raspberry - red
arcticus - northern
acaulis - no stem

Well, it does have a stem, but the flower doesn't overtop the leaves.
