The taxonomic identity of Festuca pannonica Wulfen (1809) is analysed, and lectotypes are designated for F. valesiaca Schleich. ex Gaudin (1811) and F. pseudodalmatica Krajina ex Domin (1929). The nomenclatural and taxonomic histories of these taxa are briefly described, and the lectotypes of their names are analysed morphologically. As the lectotype of F. pannonica is unambiguously referable to F. valesiaca, rejection of the name F. pannonica is desirable and is proposed separately.
