Poa saltuensis Fernald & Wiegand. Section: Sylvestres. Weak Speargrass, Old-pasture Bluegrass. Phen: Apr-Jun. Hab: Northern hardwood forests, ultramafic outcrop woodlands, barrens, glades, forests, fields, thickets. Dist: NL (Newfoundland) west to MN, south to PA, w. VA, nc. SC (York County), and w. NC.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Other Comments: The NC occurrences (on serpentinized olivine barrens) reported as P. languida are actually P. saltuensis. The taxonomic distinctions between P. saltuensis and P. languida have been controversial; Haines (2004) provides a detailed and valuable discussion.
