Agrostis vinealis; the Brown Bent can be found in most regions of Iceland. It grows on rathers dry soils like heahtlands and hills. It is quite similar to the Creeping Bent (both species have more or less red/purple colored panicles and the spikelets have one flower). The Brown Bent can be identified by the awn, missing in the Creeping Bent (see foto's of inflorescences). The Brown Bent doesn't have the long runners characteristic for the Creeping Bent. Having said this, though, the Brown Bent does form undergound rootstocks.
The Brown Brent is a member of the grass family (Poaceae, also known as Gramineae). The Icelandic name of the Brown Brent is Týtulíngresi.
