Muhlenbergia dubia Fournier ex Hemsley
Muhlenbergia acuminata Vasey
Muhlenbergia dubia is a large clump grass that is very similar to Deergrass,
Muhlenbergia rigens, with which it overlaps in habitat. Muhlenbergia dubia has glumes that
are less than 2/3 of the length of the floret. The glumes in Muhlenbergia rigens are almost
as long as the florets. Awns in Muhlenbergia dubia are very short or absent.
