Paspalum setaceum A. A. Reznicek

P. ciliatifolium of Michigan Flora.

Sandy open ground, fields, and oak savanna.

Represented by two varieties. In var. stramineum (Nash) D. J. Banks, the leaf is finely puberulent on the upper side of the blade, with long marginal cilia and sometimes longer hairs. In var. muhlenbergii (Nash) D. J. Banks, the leaf blade is not puberulent, but hirsute with long hairs. Both varieties have essentially the same range in Michigan.
