5a. Calamagrostis epigeios var. epigeios

拂子茅(原变种) fu zi mao (yuan bian zhong)

Arundo epigeios Linnaeus, Sp. Pl. 1: 81. 1753; Calama-grostis epigeios var. densiflora Grisebach; Calamagrostis epi-geios var. sylvatica T. F. Wang.

Panicle dense, interrupted, 10–30 cm. Spikelets 5–7 mm; lemma 3–3.5 mm; awn 2–3 mm; rachilla extension absent or rudimentary.

Moist ground near ditches and along riversides; 100–3900 m. Common in China [Japan, Kashmir, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan; SW Asia, Europe].

A small, glabrous rachilla process is occasionally present (the basis of var. sylvatica), but this is of no taxonomic significance.
