Arundinella setosa

Credit: cs kuoh

Rhizome short, hard; culms erect, tufted, 20-120 cm high, 1.5-5 mm across. Blade 10-40 cm long by 3-10 mm wide, usually covered with tubercle hairs; ligule membranous, about 0.5 mm long; sheath usually tubercle hairy, margin ciliated, shorter than the internode. Panicle slightly contracted, 10-30 cm long. Spikelets lanceolate, 5-7 mm long, hispid hairy at the basal part. Glumes ovate-lanceolate, subulate-lanceolate at the apex, nerves scabrous; lower glume 3-5-nerved, 3-5 mm long, about 3/5 as long as the spikelet; upper glume nearly as long as the spikelet, 5-nerved; lower lemma slightly shorter than the lower glume, glabrous, 5-nerved, staminate; anthers about 1.5 mm long; upper lemma about 2.5 mm long, scabrous, the midrib prolonged into a geniculate long awn; lateral nerves also prolonged into short awns; callus with soft hairs of about 0.7 mm long.

Widely distributed in South-east Asia.

This is a variable species with a bent awn flanked by two bristles on its lemma. The pedicels of the spikelets are most usually decorated with well-defined bristles or setae.
