Scientific name of Indian ricegrass

albert_135(Sunset 2 or 3)August 6, 2010

Some places say Indian ricegrass is Oryzopsis hymenoides and others say Achnatherum hymenoides.

Do you think that is two different names for the same plant or is it that two different plants are both called 'Indian ricegrass'?

I found it. In addition to Oryzopsis hymenoides and Achnatherum hymenoides Indian ricegrass is also called Stipa hymenoides -- according to our government, anyway.
