See Comments under Elymus virginicus var. virginicus. Map incomplete at this time, pending the extensive herbarium work that will be necessary to map the vars. of this polymorphic species.
Var. halophilus is a plant of damp brackish shores, upper borders of tidaal marshes, and various dune habitats. Very few herbarium specimens have been so named insofar as we have seen. It is reportedly confined to the outer Coastal Plain, but its distribution and status therein has not been determined.
