General Discussion

The three nonnative Chloris ciliata Sw., C. verticillata Nutt., and C. virgata Sw. have been reported from our flora; but no specimens have been seen. Some (all?) of these reports may be based on mis-identifications of Eleusine indica (or possibly Cynodon dactylon or Eustachys spp.?). Further research is needed to clarify the occurrence of Chloris spp. in our area.
