Type: Types: Southern Europe and Canaries (LINN).
Distribution: Distribution: Pakistan (Baluchistan; introduced); a native of the Mediterranean region; widely introduced elsewhere.
Comment/Acknowledgements: Canary Grass is used in mixtures of seed for cage-birds and therefore often occurs as a casual and may even establish itself. There are no modern records for Pakistan, but no doubt the plant is still to be found.
