This species has been treated as conspecific with Elymus dentatus (J. D. Hooker) Tzvelev (Spisok Rast. Gerb. Fl. SSSR Bot. Inst. Vsesoyuzn. Akad. Nauk 18: 29. 1970; Agropyron dentatum J. D. Hooker, Fl. Brit. India 7: 370. 1896 ["1897"]; Roegneria dentata (J. D. Hooker) Nevski; Semeiostachys dentata (J. D. Hooker) Drobow), which is regarded here as endemic to Kashmir and Pakistan. If the two species are united then the name E. dentatus has priority.
