Diplopogon R.Br.


iplopogon is a genus of Australian plants in the grass family. It was first described in 1810 by Robert Brown.[2] As of 2017 it contains only a singles species, Diplopogon setaceus, found in southwestern Australia. It is similar to the genus Amphipogon, the only difference being the awns of the lemma.[3]

It grows in seasonally wet areas, swamps, and fringing watercourses from Nannup to Albany. It flowers in spring and early summer in a greyish head of multiple spikelets.[4]
