Eragrostis pectinacea var. miserrima image

Pedicels widely divergent, usually spreading 20-60° from the branches. Anthers 0.2-0.4 mm.

Eragrostis pectinacea var. miserrima grows in the southern United States, from Texas to Florida, and south through the lowland tropics to Brazil. It usually flowers from July-November in the Flora region.

A weed mainly of trop. S. Amer., occurs rarely and sporadically with us. It has spreading pedicels like E. frankii, but is otherwise more like E. pectinacea.
