Found mostly in the Pacific Northwest, this annual weed is only in the northern part of Wyoming currently. Medusahead is extremely competitive; it can even overtake rangeland infested with downy brome (cheatgrass). Often confused with foxtail barley, it can be distinguished by its mature head. Awns or beards are typically twisted.
