A robust grass with knee like bent lower nodes. Inflorencences are
initially light green but turn a straw colour as it matures, wich makes
identification of the specie quite easy.
Uncommon, found along streams at high altitudes.
Africa: west-central tropical, northeast tropical, east tropical, southern
tropical, and south. Asia-temperate: Arabia. Antarctic: Subantarctic islands.
Not common and therefore a unimportant grazing grass.
