Elytrigia juncea has larger,

Elytrigia juncea has larger, but fewer spikelets and lives at the front of the beach, before the Marram grass starts. This may be E. athrica or a hybrid, as these are quite common.

I think you are right: it looks a lot more like E. atherica than E. juncea. Thankyou for the help!

I'm sorry to anyone I may

I'm sorry to anyone I may have offended with my 'revised identification', I was unsure as to how the website worked with regards to reputations etc... It was not my intention to essentially 'poach' the identification, I am now much better informed and realise that clicking the 'I agree' button was sufficient. Thankyou for everyone's help identifying this species, and again I apologise.
