Cyperus brevifolius var. stellulatus J. V. Suringar, Cyperus, 48. 1898; Kyllinga intermedia R. Brown.

Culms 2-6 cm tall. Spike globose, 4-6 mm wide, with several to 20 or more spikelets. Spikelets laxly arranged, radially spreading, usually 1- or 2-flowered. Glumes not spinulose on keel. Fl. and fr. Jun-Jul.

Kyllinga brevifolia f. pumila (J. V. Suringar) Tang & F. T. Wang (Fl. Reipubl. Popularis Sin. 11: 188. 1961; Cyperus brevifolius f. pumila J. V. Suringar, Geslacht Cyperus Mal. Archipel. 48. 1898) is similar to K. brevifolia var. stellulata, but the two taxa have not been provisionally combined here because the type of f. pumila has not been seen.

Valleys; 1900-2700 m. NW Yunnan [S India, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines].
