Hierochloe brunonis Hook.f

Anthoxanthum brunonis is a species of grass,[3] native to the South Island of New Zealand and to the Auckland and Campbell Islands.[5]

It was first described in 1845 by Joseph Dalton Hooker as Hierochloë Brunonis, the specific epithet, brunonis, being chosen to honour Robert Brown.[1]

Conservation status[]

In both 2009 and 2012 it was deemed to be "At Risk - Naturally Uncommon" under the New Zealand Threat Classification System,[5] and this New Zealand classification was reaffirmed in 2018 (due to its restricted range) with the further comment that it is sparse.[2]
