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 Agrostis distichophylla
Type: "In Botany Bay, under amiciss. Zea"
APC Comment: A name of uncertain application.
Text: "As the type has not been seen it is impossible to place this name. However, if it really did come from Botany Bay, it is probably either Sporobolus virginicus or Zoysia macrantha: both genera as now recognised were regarded as part of Agrostis at the time."
