    [GB]
    Habit
    Perennial. Culms prostrate. Lateral branches ample. Leaf-sheaths striately veined; glabrous on surface. Ligule a ciliolate membrane. Leaf-blades lanceolate; 2.5-4 cm long; 1.5-3 mm wide. Leaf-blade margins scaberulous. Leaf-blade apex acuminate.
    Inflorescences
    Inflorescence a panicle. Panicle contracted; lanceolate; 4.5-5 cm long; 1.5 cm wide. Primary panicle branches appressed. Panicle branches scaberulous; hirsute; bearded in axils. Spikelets solitary. Fertile spikelets pedicelled. Pedicels 0.2-0.5 mm long; villous; with 2.5-3 mm long hairs.
    Spikelets
    Spikelets comprising 1 basal sterile florets; 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate, or oblong; dorsally compressed; 1.5-1.6 mm long; falling entire.
    Fertile
    Spikelets comprising 1 basal sterile florets; 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate, or oblong; dorsally compressed; 1.5-1.6 mm long; falling entire.
    Glume
    Glumes dissimilar; reaching apex of florets; thinner than fertile lemma. Lower glume ovate; 0.3 mm long; 0.2 length of spikelet; membranous; without keels; 1 -veined. Lower glume lateral veins absent. Lower glume apex obtuse. Upper glume lanceolate; 1.3-1.5 mm long; 0.9 length of spikelet; membranous; without keels; 5 -veined. Upper glume surface asperulous. Upper glume apex acute.
    Florets
    Basal sterile florets barren; without significant palea. Lemma of lower sterile floret similar to upper glume; lanceolate; 1.5-1.6 mm long; 1 length of spikelet; membranous; 5 -veined; scaberulous; acute. Fertile lemma oblong; dorsally compressed; 1.5-1.6 mm long; indurate; shiny; without keel. Lemma margins involute. Lemma apex acute. Palea involute; indurate.
