20. Anthoxanthum L. (vernal grass)

About 50 species, North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, mostly in temperate regions or at high elevations.

Generic boundaries in this group are controversial. Anthoxanthum in the strict sense contains about 20 mostly Old World species, but some authors expand the genus to include the approximately 30 species separated in most of the botanical literature as Hierochloe R. Br. (Tucker, 1996).
