Perennials; stolon creeping, stout, flowering culm very short, 20-50 cm tall, nodes thickened and
pubescent. Blade 5-10 cm long, 3-7 mm wide, glabrous; sheath glabrous, margins ciliate; ligule membranaceous,
truncate and fringed, 2-3 mm long, glabrous abaxially; Racemes 2, 2-6 cm long; rachis 1.5-
2 mm wide, flat. Spikelets solitary, obovate-oblong, acute, loosely pubesent, ca. 3 mm long; lower
glume usually absent, developed in a few spikelets, triangular in shape, ca. 0.3 mm long; upper glume
appressed pubescent; lower lemma 3-5-veined, usually glabrous, acute; upper lemma nearly as long as
spikelet, coriaceous, pale green, acute, hairy at apex.
