Type
Type: Brazil, Lagoa Santa, Warming s.n. (C, lecto.)( Note: Robinson discusses the type material of this)
Morphology General Habit
Robust rhizomatous perennial 0.5–1.8 m tall, with stem-bases swollen, up to 5 mm wide, forming a ± shapeless knotty mass or sometimes extended into a ± straight row but true rhizome lacking.
Morphology Roots
Roots becoming cylindrical and tuberous at a distance of 3–10 cm from stem bases.
Morphology Stem
Stems 2–3 mm wide, scabrid
Morphology Leaves
Leaves 20–50 cm long, 5–12 mm wide, usually sharply scabrid on margins and ribs but otherwise glabrous or hairy at base and on the winged sheaths.
Morphology Leaves Leaf sheaths
Lower sheaths purplish, without blades, with thickened ligule
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescence of 1 terminal and 3–6 lateral panicles 3–8(–12) cm long, rarely all single but mostly 2–3 to each node on erect or pendulous glabrous or scabrid peduncles up to 6 cm long; male spikelets 5–6 mm long with straw-coloured glumes, sessile or pedicels very short; female spikelets 6–7 mm long the glumes strawcoloured or green, often strongly speckled with deep reddish brown and with green midrib
Morphology Reproductive morphology Fruits
Nutlets green turning white or grey to brown, narrowly ovoid to ovoidsubglobose, 2.7–4.2 mm long, 2–2.5 mm wide, smooth or faintly striate-lacunose, hairy, more so towards the base, ± glabrous above; hypogynium yellowish brown with narrowly acuminate lobes or these sometimes almost or completely absent.
Ecology
Grassland, Terminalia-Combretum and Brachystegia-Uapaca woodland, forest edge grassland; 750–1650 m (Note: If the record from Pemba in Napper (1964) is correct then the lower altitude will be near sea level.)
Note
Robinson suggests that some of the extensive variation may prove to be geographically correlated and that subspecies might be desirable, but more study throughout its range would be needed. Lye established subsp. canaliculato-triquetra but gave absolutely no reasons or distinctions in either reference and later, in Fl. Eth., sunk the subspecies.
