General/Distribution: A genus of about 17 species centred on the Mediterranean, extending into temperate Europe and Asia and tropical highlands of both hemispheres; 2 species occur in Pakistan.
Comment/Acknowledgements: A homogeneous genus whose species have very similar spikelets and are distinguished mainly by vegetative characters. The species themselves are rather variable, and tend to intergrade one with another.
