- Genus (4): Agrostis · Alopecurus · Calamagrostis · Phleum
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 2,528 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Subtribe Alopecuridinae.
Agrostis (bent or bentgrass) is a genus of over 100 species belonging to the grass family Poaceae, commonly referred to as the bent grasses. Among this group are some of the main traditional lawn grasses. [more]
Alopecurus L., or Foxtail Grass, is a genus of the grass family Poaceae with 25 to 35 species. [more]
Calamagrostis, or Small-reed or (Am.) Reedgrass, is a genus in the Grass family Poaceae with about 260 species that occur mainly in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere and the southern hemisphere. Towards equatorial latitudes, species of Calamagrostis generally occur at higher elevations in mountainous regions. These tufted perennials usually have hairless narrow leaves. The ligules are usually blunt. The inflorescence forms a panicle. Some may be reed-like. [more]
Phleum (catstail or timothy-grass) is a genus of about 15 species of annual and perennial grasses. The genus is native to Europe, Asia and north Africa, with one species (P. alpinum) also in North and South America. [more]
At least 127 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Phleum.
