This annual grass with a strictly Mediterranean, mainly western distribution, is present in Tuscany, Lazio, Campania, Puglia, Calabria, Sicily and Sardinia. It grows in pastures and wet meadows and at the edges of temporary ponds, on mainly siliceous substrates, from sea level to about 600 m. It is a characteristic species of the Mediterranean temporary ponds of Sardinia, common in the outer belt, where it occupies large areas. The name of the genus, recently segregated from Agrostis, refers to the affinity with the genus Schischkinia, dedicated to the Russian botanist Boris Konstantinovich Schischkin (1886-1963); the species is dedicated to the French abbot and botanist Pierre André Pourret (1754-1818). Flowering period: April to June. Syn.: Agrostis salmantica (Lag.) Kunth



Italian name(s): Agrostide di Pourret (Italia)
