Morphology General Habit
Perennial; caespitose. Culms erect, or geniculately ascending; 15-100 cm long. Culm-nodes pubescent. Leaf-sheath oral hairs lacking. Leaf-sheath auricles falcate. Ligule an eciliate membrane; 0.2-0.6 mm long. Leaf-blades 9-18 cm long; 2-6.5 mm wide. Leaf-blade surface scabrous.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescence composed of racemes. Racemes 1; single; linear; bilateral; (2-)3.5-9 cm long; 5-7 mm wide. Rhachis tough, or fragile at the nodes (above); flattened; scabrous on margins; glabrous on margins. Spikelet packing broadside to rhachis. Rhachis internodes oblong; 1-1.5 mm long; falling with spikelet above. Spikelets in threes. Fertile spikelets sessile, or sessile and pedicelled; 1 in the cluster, or 3 in the cluster; 1 sessile. Companion sterile spikelets pedicelled; 0 in the cluster, or 2 in the cluster. Pedicels oblong.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Spikelets
Companion sterile spikelets absent, or well-developed; male; lanceolate; dorsally compressed; 4-11 mm long; shorter than fertile; persistent, or deciduous with the fertile. Companion sterile spikelet glumes subulate. Companion sterile spikelet lemmas 1; 4-7 mm long; 1-awned; with 2.5-6 mm long awn. Spikelets comprising 1 fertile florets; with a barren rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate; dorsally compressed; 4-11 mm long; falling entire, or breaking up at maturity; deciduous when tough with accessory branch structures; disarticulating when fragile below each fertile floret.
Sterile
Companion sterile spikelets absent, or well-developed; male; lanceolate; dorsally compressed; 4-11 mm long; shorter than fertile; persistent, or deciduous with the fertile. Companion sterile spikelet glumes subulate. Companion sterile spikelet lemmas 1; 4-7 mm long; 1-awned; with 2.5-6 mm long awn.
Fertile
Spikelets comprising 1 fertile florets; with a barren rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate; dorsally compressed; 4-11 mm long; falling entire, or breaking up at maturity; deciduous when tough with accessory branch structures; disarticulating when fragile below each fertile floret.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Bracts Glume
Glumes collateral; similar. Lower glume subulate; 4-11 mm long; 1 length of upper glume. Upper glume subulate; 4-11 mm long.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Florets
Fertile lemma lanceolate; 4.3-7.5 mm long; coriaceous; without keel; 5 -veined. Lemma surface glabrous, or puberulous. Lemma apex acuminate; awned; 1 -awned. Principal lemma awn straight; 4-13 mm long overall; limb scabrous. Rhachilla extension 3.5-8 mm long.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers
Anthers 3; 1.4-2.4 mm long. Ovary pubescent on apex.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Fruits
Caryopsis with adherent pericarp; sulcate on hilar side; hairy at apex. Hilum linear.
