    Inflorescences
    Inflorescence a panicle. Panicle open; ovate; 1.5-3 cm long. Primary panicle branches 5-6 in number; ascending; 0.6-1.2 cm long; bearing 1-3 fertile spikelets on each lower branch. Spikelets solitary. Fertile spikelets pedicelled. Pedicels 0.33-0.5 length of fertile spikelet.
    Spikelets
    Spikelets comprising 1 basal sterile florets; 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets ovate; dorsally compressed; obtuse; 1.2 mm long; breaking up at maturity; disarticulating below each fertile floret.
    Fertile
    Spikelets comprising 1 basal sterile florets; 1 fertile florets; without rhachilla extension. Spikelets ovate; dorsally compressed; obtuse; 1.2 mm long; breaking up at maturity; disarticulating below each fertile floret.
    Glume
    Glumes deciduous; similar; shorter than spikelet; thinner than fertile lemma. Lower glume ovate; 1 mm long; 0.9 length of spikelet; membranous; without keels. Lower glume surface scabrous; rough on veins. Upper glume elliptic; 1 mm long; 0.9 length of spikelet; membranous; without keels. Upper glume surface scabrous; rough on veins.
    Florets
