Intergeneric hybridizations were made between T. elongatum, and two Psathyrostachys and five Leymus species. The seed set obtained on T. elongatum × Leymus hybrids ranged from 5.65% to 20.00%, depending on Leymus species. The seed set obtained on T. elongatum × Psathyrostachys hybrids ranged from 16.07% to 19.70%. Meiotic pairing at metaphase-I in JN diploid hybrids of T. elongatum × Psathyrostachys species revealed a very low level homology between the basic J and N genomes, and further demonstrated that the two genomes are quite diverged. Chromosome pairing in the T. elongatum × Leymus secalinus hybrid averaged 15.19 univalents + 2.62 rod bivalents + 0.26 ring bivalents + 0.02 trivalents, suggesting that the partial Je chromosomes of T. elongatum has homology with Leymus secalinus genomes. L. secalinus might have 3—4 chromosomes originating from Je genome.
