Festuca in Venezuela & Brazil. Nine native and one introduced (F. arundinacea) species are recognized. Four species previously mentioned in the literature are confirmed (F. tolucensis, F. coromotensis, F. elviae, F. fragilis) and records of two species previously published are considered dubious (F. amplissima, F. pinetorum). Data on two species (F. hatico, F. ulochaeta) represent new records for Venezuela. One subspecies new to science is distinguished (F. tolucensis ssp. culata). Three species (F. dinirica, F. guaramaca, F. venezuelana) recently described complete the study. From Brazil are known only two species:
