The Australian Plant Name Index (APNI) is a tool for the botanical community that deals with plant names and their usage in the scientific literature, whether as a current name or synonym. APNI does not recommend any particular taxonomy or nomenclature. For a listing of currently accepted scientific names for the Australian vascular flora, please use the Australian Plant Census (APC) link above.

APC Comment: A northern hemisphere taxon, now referred to Helictotrichon pratense (L.) Pilg., recorded as a "naturalized alien" by A.J.Ewart, Vict. Naturalist 24: 191 (1908) but not known to be naturalised in Australia.
Text: "Listed for Vic. by A.J.Ewart, Vict. Naturalist 24: 191 (1908), based on a specimen collected by Charles Walter in 1898. The species has not been collected in Australia since and it is not considered naturalised. The specimen in MEL was correctly identified at the time and has since been redetermined as Helictotrichon pratense (L.) PIlg., Repert Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. 45: 6 (1938)."
