The correct name for the grass known as Aristida affinis (Schultes) Kunth in the United States is A. palustris (Chapman) Vasey, A. affinis being a synonym of A. purpurescens Poiret. The taxonomic relationship of A. lanosa Muhl. ex Elliott and A. palustris was assessed using principal components and stepwise discriminant analyses. The two taxa are clearly distinguished by a combination of several vegetative and spikelet structures and are not closely related phenetically.
