Comment/Acknowledgements: Avena barbata subsp. wiestii (Steud.) Mansf. has been reported from Pakistan, but its presence cannot be fonfirmed. Several authors (e.g. Bor, l.c.) distinguish it from subsp. barbata by the presence of a lateral tooth at the base of each bristle at the tip of the lemma, a character which is unreliable. They are best distinguished by spikelet length (16-20 mm in subsp. wiestii., 20-30 mm in subsp. barbata) and length of the lowest lemma (12-16 mm and 16-20 mm respectively). Subsp. wiestii also has a larger, more floriferous panicle.
