This grass resembles an overgrown tobosa, both growing from rough, scaly rhizomes. The main difference between the two is galleta has awns on each glume (4-5 mm) whereas, tobosa grass does not. Often burned to increase its palatability to livestock. Adapted to dry plains and dry slopes. Found primarily in the western Texas panhandle.
