Glyceria notata whole Glyceria notata close

Stace notes that this grass which used to be known as Glyceria plicata, is probably under-recorded. That is always likely with grass where the differences in appearance between species in the genus depends on looking at fine detail. Fortunately our expert WFS guide had determined that this was Glyceria notata and not Glyceria fluitans which can be quite similar.

Glyceria notata is common in England and all but central Wales. It is also common in south eastern Scotland but records quickly diminish as you go north. It is regularly recorded in north and central Ireland.
