Morphology General Habit
Perennial; caespitose. Culms erect; 40-45 cm long; 2-5 -noded. Culm-internodes distally pilose. Leaf-sheaths 13-16 cm long; pilose. Leaf-sheath oral hairs ciliate. Ligule a ciliolate membrane. Leaf-blades filiform; conduplicate; 25-30 cm long. Leaf-blade surface smooth; glabrous. Leaf-blade apex muticous.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Inflorescence a panicle. Panicle contracted; linear; 12-14 cm long; 2-3 cm wide. Spikelets solitary. Fertile spikelets pedicelled.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Spikelets
Spikelets comprising 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate; subterete; 31-34 mm long; breaking up at maturity; disarticulating below each fertile floret. Floret callus elongated; curved; 3 mm long; pungent.
Fertile
Spikelets comprising 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets lanceolate; subterete; 31-34 mm long; breaking up at maturity; disarticulating below each fertile floret. Floret callus elongated; curved; 3 mm long; pungent.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences Bracts Glume
Glumes persistent; similar; exceeding apex of florets; thinner than fertile lemma. Lower glume linear, or lanceolate; 31-34 mm long; 1 length of upper glume; hyaline; without keels. Lower glume surface pilose. Lower glume apex attenuate. Upper glume linear, or lanceolate; 31-34 mm long; 2.5 length of adjacent fertile lemma; hyaline; without keels. Upper glume apex attenuate.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Florets

Principal lemma awn geniculate; 70-77 mm long overall; with 54-58 mm long limb; with twisted column; limb glabrous. Column of lemma awn 16-19 mm long; ciliate. Palea 6.5 mm long; 0.5 length of lemma; without keels.
