Tetrapogon Desf.



Tetrapogon is a genus of grasses.[1] The name Tetrapogon derives from the Greek roots tetra- and pogon, meaning "four" and "beard", respectively, in reference to the tufts of hairs on the plant.[1] The species in this genus are distributed across Africa, around the Mediterranean Sea, and through the Middle East as far east as India.[1]
