Vegetative parts: plants mat-Forming, 0.5–1 m tall, basal diameter 0.1–1 m, crown diameter 0.1–1 m, with stolons. Fertile culms branching, round (not compressed) or compressed near apex, smooth or finely rugulose or finely warty (rarely), speckled golden, 0.5–1 m tall, diameter at base 0.5–2 mm, diameter at apex 0.2–0.6 mm. Sheaths closely convoluted, 5–23 mm long, olivaceous to golden speckled, like culms, apical margins narrowly membranous, hyaline shoulders membranous margins continuing behind awn, hyaline shoulder 0.01 of sheath body length, apex, excluding the membranous lobes, obtuse or rounded. Sheath-mucro penicellate, straight and erect, 0.5–2 mm long. Males: male inflorescence with 2–5 spikelets or 6–10 spikelets or 11–20 spikelets, racemose or paniculate, 15–80 mm long, 5–20 mm wide. Male inflorescence spathes persistent or caducous (eventually), shorter than spikelets or as tall as spikelets (slightly), coriaceous. Male flowers in spikelets. Male spikelets erect on stiff pedicels or sessile, oblong or ovate, apex obtuse, 4–10 mm, 3–5 mm, with 1–7 flowers, pedicels absent ie spikelets sessile. Male bracts taller than flowers, 3–7 mm long, oblong or ovate, acute or acuminate, chartaceous, bract upper margin like body of bract, bract awn minute or absent. Male flower 2.2–3.5 mm long. Male tepals sepals and petals the same rigidity or sepals more rigid than petals (very slightly), cartilaginous, petals chartaceous, oblong, inner and outer tepals the same length. Male outer lateral tepals conduplicate, glabrous. Anthers 1.5–2 mm long, exserted from the flowers. Pistillode present. Females: female inflorescence racemose, 10–70 mm long, 5–10 mm wide, with 1 spikelet or 2–5 spikelets or 6–10 spikelets. Female spathes shorter than the spikelets, persistent, coriaceous or cartilaginous. Female spikelet sessile, oblong or ovate or obovate, apex rounded or obtuse, 8–15 mm long, with 3–8 flowers, with 0 sterile bracts. Female bracts taller than flowers or at least twice as long as flowers, 5–12 mm long, oblong or ovate, acute or acuminate, chartaceous or cartilaginous, apical margin like rest of bract, same as body of bract, awn minute or absent. Female flower 2.9–3.6 mm long, without a fleshy pedicel. Female tepals cartilaginous, glabrous and smooth or keels of lateral sepals sparsely villous, midrib flush with the tepal body, apices acute, inner and outer whorls the same length or inner whorl shorter than outer. Female outer lateral tepals conduplicate, 3–3.7 mm long. Female odd outer tepal oblong, 2.8–3.3 mm long. Female inner tepals ovate, 2.7–3.3 mm long. Staminodes present. Styles feathery, 3. Style bases free. Ovary with 2 locules, dehiscent. Fruit: seed 1.5 mm long, shape in side view elliptical, rugose.
