This species constitutes the first report of the genus in the New World. grows together with and , showing intermediate characters. This species gives additional evidence to support Loxton's hypothesis that is derived from hybridization between and and also supports the phylogenetic hypothesis showing close relationships between and .

Se describe e ilustra una nueva especie de Tarigidia en Puerto Rico. Se incluyen caracteres adicionales de la inflorescencia y espiguillas. Esta especie constituye el primer registro del género Tarigidia en América. Tarigidia axelrodii crece junto a Anthephora hermaphrodita y Digitaria bicornis, mostrando caracteres intermedios. Esta especie provee evidencia adicional apoyando la hipótesis de Loxton sobre el origen híbrido de Tarigidia a partir de Anthephora y Digitaria y, al mismo tiempo, sustenta la hipótesis filogenética donde se sugieren estrechas relaciones entre Anthephora y Digitaria.
