Comments.

The description of Stipa virlettii  (Type: Virlet 1376 from San Luis de Potos√≠, Mexico) appears to be a mixture of Stipa mucronata  Kunth [= Nassella mucronata  ] awns and Bromus laciniatus  Beal (= Bromus carinatus  Hook & Arn.) as determined by A.S. Hitchcock (isotype: US-A866077 fragm. ex P-Fourn-163!). Notes by A.S. Hitchcock on the US sheet with two fragment packets indicate that there are two species of Bromus  on the herb. Fournier sheet: A is B. richardsonii  Link; B is B. carinatus  , also annotated by ASH.
