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.
Showing Brachypodium pinnatum
APC Comment: A northern hemisphere taxon recorded as a "naturalized alien" by A.J.Ewart Vict. Naturalist 24: 191 (1908), and by B.K.Simon, Tech. Bull. Bot. Branch. Dept Prim. Industr. Queensl. 3: 18 (1978), but does not appear to have persisted as a naturalised plant in Australia.
Text: "Although recorded as occurring in Vic. by A.J.Ewart (Vict. Naturalist 24: 191, 1908) and in Tas. by B.K.Simon (Techn. Bull Bot. Branch Dept. Prim. Industr. Queensland 3: 18, 1978) this species is not considered to be naturalised in Australia. The C.Walter specimen from Vic. collected in 1900 and held in MEL has limited provenance information and may well represent a cultivated plant. There do not appear to be any specimens from Tas., and this record may have been an error for the early Vic. collection."
