#765 They called me Brachypodium retusum, also known as Brachypodium allionii, Brachypodium willkommii, Brachypodium hostii, Brachypodium plukenetii, and Bromus plukenetii. I pay homage to the male botanists Allion (I couldn’t find his records), Heinrich Moritz Willkomm, Nicolaus Thomas Host, and Leonard Plukenet. They first catalogued me in 1812.
