Superior lemma cartilaginous to chartaceous, rounded on the back, the flat, thin, semi-hyaline margins enfolding and concealing most of the palea, acute to acuminate, rarely aristate, longitudinal ornamentation more or less pronounced, pale to dark brown in fruit, often purplish tinged.

    Inflorescences
    Inflorescence of 1-many racemes, variably arranged, from solitary along a common axis to digitate or in superposed whorls, sometimes with secondary branchlets; rhachis triquetrous, but often winged on two sides, bearing the alternate spikelet groups along the non-winged side.
