The status of the name Oxytropis borealis DC. is reviewed as it applies to North American plants. A summary of the infraspecific taxa is presented, and several nomenclatural combinations are proposed: Oxytropis borealis DC. var. hudsonica (Greene) Welsh; O. borealis var. sulphurea (Pors.) Welsh; O. borealis DC. var. viscid (Nutt.) Welsh. One new taxon, Oxytropis borealis DC. var. australis Welsh, is described from Utah and Nevada, USA.
