Some authors have recently considered Koeleria lobata (M. Bieb.) Roem. & Schult. to be the correct name for those grasses traditionally named K. splendens C. Presl. Koeleria lobata is in fact the correct name for another species that has been named as K. brevis Steven or K. degenii Domin. Although the clarification of the true identity of K. lobata solves the current nomenclatural confusion between K. lobata and K. splendens, preserving the use of this last name, the restitution of K. lobata to its correct use would cause notable nomenclatural confusion thus making it compulsory to propose its rejection.
