Batianoff’s Paspalum Grass (Paspalum batianoffii 

Batianoff’s Paspalum Grass was described in 1992, it was collected in the Statue Bay, about 6,5 km southeast of the town of Yeppon in the Gladstone District (formerly Port Curtis District) in Queensland, Australia.

The species had 20 to 40 cm long, creeping stems. 

Batianoff’s Paspalum Grass inhabited a very narrow foredune with open wood land consisting of some common, widely distributed plant species, it was found growing directly above the flood mark, acting as a sand stabilizer. 


The species is apparently extinct today, however, the reasons for this appear to be unknown.
