Type: Type: Switzerland (LAU).
Distribution: Distribution: Pakistan (Baluchistan; Punjab); southern Europe and the Mediterranean regions eastwards to Uzbekistan; introduced to most temperate countries.
Comment/Acknowledgements: This species intergrades with both Lolium perenne and Lolium multiflorurn. Certain variants are almost impossible to distinguish from the former if the base of the plant is missing since the only difference is that one is annual and the other perennial.
