Niphotrichum muticum (Kindb.) Frisvoll is recorded for the first time from the Aleutian Islands where it was collected on three islands, namely Kiska Island in the Rat Islands group, Adak Island in the Andreanof Islands group, and Unalaska Island in the Fox Islands group. The Aleutian plants are briefly described and illustrated and ecological requirements of the species are discussed. The North American and global ranges of N. muticum are reviewed and mapped. On rapporte pour la première fois le Niphotrichum muticum (Kindb.) Frisvol, sur les îles Aléoutiennes. On l'a retrouvé sur trois îles, nommément l'île Kiska du groupe des îles au Rat, l'île Adak du groupe des îles Andreanof et l'île Unalaska du groupe des îles Fox. Les auteurs décrivent brièvement et illustrent ces plantes des Aléoutiennes et discutent les besoins écologiques de l'espèce. Ils passent en revue l'ensemble de l'aire nord-américaine de l'espèce et présentent une carte de distribution.
