Vulpia is a genus of grasses which are known as fescues; Vulpia is sometimes considered a subset of the main fescue genus, Festuca. Many of these fescues are considered noxious weeds in places where they are not native.[1] Vulpia myuros is a notable weed. The genus is named for J. S. Vulpius (1760-1846), a German botanist.[2]
