Festuca archeri E. B. Alexeev

Archer’s Fescue (Festuca archeri)  

Archer’s Fescue, described in 1987, is known only from the type material that was collected at an unknown locality and that consists only of the upper part of a single culm and its inflorescence.

The species is very doubtful and may in fact not even be valid. [1]
