basionym: Bromus sterilis L. legitimate common name: Barren Drank [n/a]
  • Comment: Authorship of this name is sometimes attributed to Panz. (i.e. G.W.F.Panzer, Denkschr. Konigl. Akad. Wiss. Munchen 4: 297 (1814)). While Panzer indicates that various species of Bromus, including B. sterilis, belong in his new genus Zerna he does not directly associate the genus name and specific epithets as required by ICN Art. 35.2 (Melbourne Code, 2012).
