A study of 25 morphological characters in five populations of Poa palustris L. and P. nemoralis L. from Middle Ural revealed a high degree of their both intra- and inter-population variability, a lot of samples to combine the characters of both species. This allows us to suggest the hybrid nature of the studied populations and the formation of supraspecific structure – complicated hybridogenic complex. Statistical analysis confirmed the difference between Middle Ural and Siberian populations of P. palustris × nemoralis.
