The presence of Deyeuxia P. Beauv. (Poaceae) genus during the Middle and Late Holocene (ca. 7410-460 B.P.) in archaeological sites situated in Antofagasta de la Sierra, Province of Catamarca, Southern Argentina Puna, is analysed. A large number of species belonging to this genus was recovered in the following sites: Quebrada Seca 3, Cueva Salamanca 1, Punta de la Peña 3, Punta de la Peña 4, Punta de la Peña 9, Punta de la Peña 11 and Peña de la Cruz 1. The taxa Deyeuxia eminens J. Presl var. eminens, D. eminens var. fulva (Griseb.) Rúgolo, D. deserticola Phil., D. curvula Wedd. and D. rigescens (J. Presl) Türpe, were identified from morphological and anatomical analysis in comparison with contemporary material; the foliar and caulinar anatomy was taken into account. Some aspects of relationships to plant resource catchment areas, hunter-gatherer groups movements and use of the recovered species are discussed based on this information
