Rachis internodes and pedicels often ciliate along outer angle, inner angles glabrous or shortly ciliate. Sessile spikelet obovate, broadly winged, awned; awn exserted, 0.8–1.2 cm, geniculate. 2n = 72.

This awned form of Ischaemum aristatum is very similar to I. ciliare, and the two have been much confused. Ischaemum ciliare clearly differs by its laterally compressed, geniculately awned pedicelled spikelets. It also has bearded nodes and a slightly smaller (4–6 mm) sessile spikelet.
