Nomenclatural Comment
The specific epithet commemorates Felix Maximillian Franz Reader (1850–1911), a German-born pharmacist and amateur botanist, best known for his Australian collections. Reader lived briefly in Blenheim (N.Z.) in the late 1870s or early 1880s (collecting near Blenheim in 1881) before emigrating from N.Z. to Victoria, where he lived, apparently for many years, at Dimboola. He was an enthusiastic botanist who published many papers in the Victorian Naturalist and established himself as an expert on Victorian grasses. He sent mosses to Brotherus and Carl Müller (Müll.Hal.) and eventually sold his large private herbarium to the National Herbarium of Victoria in 1906., Type: Australia, Victoria, Dimboola, Sep. 1897, F.M.
