Description & Remarks

A wide spead perennial herb, common in the temperate parts of Euroasia and reaching its regional distribution border in north Israel. So far only few specimen were found in a single location in the northern Golan heights.

P. pratense is distinguished from its close relative – P. bertolinii, which grows in dolinas on Mt. Hermon and has a similar shaped glumes – by its broader spike (5-7 mm) and its longer glumes, with longer subulated tips (1-1.5 mm) and not ciliated at the brim.

P. prarense was first discovered in Israel by Reut Luria, Dar Ben-Natan and Merav Lebel in summer 2018, and observed by them again at the same spot in summer 2019.
