General Discussion

The nonnative Eustachys petraea (Sw.) Desv. and Eustachys retusa (Lag.) Kunth have a handful of reports from our area, but no specimens have been seen. These reports may be based on mis-identifications of Eleusine indica (or possibly Cynodon dactylon?); further research is needed to clarify the occurrence of Eustachys in our flora.
