Bromus interruptus (interrupted brome)

Synonyms: Bromus mollis var. interruptus; Bromus pseudovelutinus

Wikipedia Abstract

Bromus interruptus, commonly known as the interrupted brome, is a plant in the true grass family. It is endemic to southern and central England, but is believed to have been extinct in the wild since 1972. After several decades in cultivation, the interrupted brome was re-introduced to a reserve in Aston Rowant in 2004, marking the first known re-introduction of an extinct plant in Britain.
