Molinea

Molinia Schrank

As traditionally (i.e. broadly) circumscribed Molinia only counts two species in Eurasia. However, species boundaries within Molinia are rather controversial. The exceedingly variable Molinia caerulea s.l. is native in Belgium (Lambinon & al. 2004). Some of its infraspecific taxa are sometimes given specific rank.
