Common Name
Muhlenberg's Slender Paspalum
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Varieties not treated in the Flora of Virginia
Many Virginia herbarium specimens of P. setaceum are not identified as to variety. Based on specimens at VPI annotated by Dr. R.L. Wilbur (DUKE) in 2015, as well as additional verified specimens at other herbaria, the most frequent subspecific taxon in Virginia is var. mühlenbergii, while var. ciliatifolium and var. setaceum are widespread but much less often encountered. Further study of herbarium material is needed.
Dry to, less often, mesic habitats, including woodlands, clearings, rock outcrops, interdune swales, meadows, fields, and roadsides. Distributed state-wide.
