Hordeum secalinum, false rye barley or meadow barley[1] (a name it shares with Hordeum brachyantherum), is a species of wild barley native to Europe, including the Madeiras, Crimea and the north Caucasus, northwest Africa, and the Levant.[3] It has been introduced to Australia and New Zealand. An allotetraploid, it arose from ancestors with the Xa and I Hordeum genomes.[4]
