Agrostis castellana (Poaceae) mis-identified as A. capillaris var. aristata in Western Australia
MACFARLANE, T.D. AND WILLIAMS, A.R.
In the process of assisting with the updating of Western Weeds: a Guide to the Weeds of Western Australia (Hussey & Keighery 1997) we became aware that Batson (1998) had identified Agrostis castellana Bois. et Reuter as the dominant species in ‘bent grass’ pastures in South-eastern Australia, which had previously been reported as being dominated by A. capillaris L. (syn. A. tenuis Sibth.).
