Aegilops neglecta Bertol.
Stem: 25--35 cm. Leaf: blade 2--8 cm, to 3--4 mm wide, long-hairy, margins generally ciliate. Inflorescence: 3--6 cm, vestigial basal spikelets generally 3; distal spikelets abruptly +- oblong; falling as a whole at maturity. Fertile Spikelet: 10--11 mm, laterally compressed, +- inflated or urn-shaped; glumes +- equal, 9--10 mm, 7--9-veined, 2--3-awned to 5 cm; lemma 10--11 mm, 5-veined, 2--4-awned to 2.5 cm. Distal Spikelet: 2--5 mm, narrowly cylindrical. Chromosomes: 2n=28,48.
Ecology: Disturbed fields, roadsides; Elevation: 30--800 m. Bioregional Distribution: KR, NCo, SN, ScV; Distribution Outside California: to Washington; native to Mediterranean, western Asia. Flowering Time: May--Jul Note: Because this sp. has not appeared in earlier California floras, specimens have often been misidentified as Aegilops triuncialis L. Potentially an aggressive weed.
Synonyms: Aegilops triaristata Willd.
Unabridged Note: Expanded author citation: Aegilops neglecta Req. ex Bertol.
