California brome (Bromus carinatus): Annual or biennial grass native from British Columbia south to California, introduced to the Yukon and northern southeast Alaska

Apparently no collection records from Southeast Alaska, there are many records of this species from coastal British Columbia right up to the border with Southeast Alaska.

When Bromus carinatus is searched in PacNW herbaria database, records that come up are B. sitchensis var. marginatus - so apparently that taxonomy treats this species as a variety of Alaska Brome (Bromus sitchensis).
