Significant sighting

1 Jun 2020

only 4th ACT record of this grass - all are in good quality woodland, away from areas of intensive agricultural or horse paddocks, which makes me think that it is an ACT native

One plant in seed in area subject to cultural/ecological burn. This is considered by CSIRO as a weed in the ACT, but I am not sure that the ACT is not the eastern limit of this grass. My be other non-seeding plants around but I couldn't distinguish any
