ocrnotes:D. discolor, Crepin (Aira setacea, Huds.) (A. uliginosa, Weihe). Near Forres, August, 1887, Loch near Altyre, Nairn, 95. A new-county record. It was also abundant in Easterness, round Lochs Phihulais, Dallas, an Eilan, Gahmna, &c. The plant is easily distinguished from D. flexuosa, Trim, by the numerous asperities on the panicle branches, which give to them a dull appearance. In flexuosa the branches and branchlets are more or less shining.--G. C. Druce, "Crepin is not the author of the name, but Roem. and Schult. Your specimen is exactly like those from Rambouillet, Roemer's original station,"--E. Hackel.
