1b. Pseudopogonatherum contortum var. sinense Keng & S. L. Chen, Fl. Hainan. 4: 540. 1977.

中华笔草 zhong hua bi cao

Spikelet pair with equal pedicels, rachis internode equaling pedicels; callus 0.2–0.3 mm, obtuse; upper glume with 0.5–1 mm mucro. Fl. and fr. autumn.

* Hill slopes; ca. 700 m. Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Hainan, Jiangxi.

This is probably the same taxon as Pseudopogonatherum collinum (Balansa) A. Camus, from N Vietnam, which is often included within P. contortum.

The name "Eulalia contorta var. sinensis Keng" (Claves Gen. Sp. Gram. Prim. Sin. 237. 1957) belongs here, but was not validly published because no Latin description was provided.
