Digitaria sanguinalis (L.) Scop.
Incompletely mapped at present. See Comments under Digitaria ciliaris (Retz.) Koeler, which was included in D. sanguinalis, in the broad sense, in most previous Virginia studies; and see the composite map (Digitaria sanguinalis / ciliaris complex) containing all records for both species. Many herbarium specimens labeled as D. sanguinalis have not been re-examined in relation to this split. Although widespread, D. sanguinalis s.s. is far less frequent than D. ciliaris in Virginia.
Fields, pastures, roadsides, gardens, and other open, disturbed habitats; often on cultivated or waste ground. Apparently frequent throughout, though much less numerous than Digitaria ciliaris, with which it has usually been lumped.
