Vegetative parts: plants mat-Forming (plants spreading with stolons), 0.15–0.4 m tall, basal diameter 1–4 m, crown diameter 1–4 m, with stolons. Fertile culms branching, round (not compressed), solid or with a small central cavity, smooth or finely rugulose, olivaceous, 0.15–0.4 m tall, diameter at base 0.3–0.9 mm, diameter at apex 0.2–0.4 mm. Branch axil indumentum absent. Clusters of sterile branches at the nodes of the fertile branches absent. Sheaths more than 1 per culm, persistent, with no abscission line, closely convoluted, 3–10 mm long, margins entire, tan with a few reddish-brown speckles, upper 1/3 in colour and texture similar to the lower 2/3, apical margins narrowly membranous or broadly membranous, hyaline shoulders membranous margins continuing behind awn, apex, excluding the membranous lobes, acute. Sheath-mucro penicellate or awl- or needleshaped, straight and erect, 0.5–3 mm long. Males: male inflorescence with 2–5 spikelets, racemose, 5–20 mm long, 1–3 mm wide. Male inflorescence spathes persistent, shorter than spikelets, coriaceous or cartilaginous. Male spathellae inconspicuous or absent. Male flowers in spikelets. Male spikelets erect on stiff pedicels or sessile, elliptical, apex acute or undifferentiated, 3.5–6 mm, 0.7–1 mm, with 3–4 flowers, pedicels absent ie spikelets sessile. Male bracts as tall as flowers, 3.5–4 mm long, ovate, acute, cartilaginous, bract upper margin membranous, thinner texture than the body, bract awn minute or absent. Male flower 3–4 mm long. Male tepals sepals and petals the same rigidity, chartaceous, oblong or ovate, inner and outer tepals the same length. Male outer lateral tepals conduplicate or as other tepals (in some flowers conduplicate tepals are very distinct while others lack conduplicate tepals), glabrous. Anthers 1–1.5 mm long, exserted from the flowers. Females: female inflorescence interrupted, 3–30 mm long, 1–5 mm wide, with 1 spikelet or 2–5 spikelets. Female spathes as long as the spikelets, persistent, cartilaginous. Female spathellae inconspicuous or absent. Female spikelet sessile, undifferentiated, apex undifferentiated, 2.7–4 mm long, with 2 flowers, with 1 sterile bracts. Female bracts as tall as flowers, erect, 2.5–3.5 mm long, elliptical or ovate, acute, chartaceous, apical margin membranous, same as body of bract, awn minute or absent or less than half as long as the bract body. Female flower 1.5–3.5 mm long, regular, without a fleshy pedicel, six tepals. Female tepals chartaceous (though not too thin, not membranous), glabrous and smooth, midrib flush with the tepal body, apices acute, inner and outer whorls the same length. Female outer lateral tepals conduplicate, 1.5–3.3 mm long. Female odd outer tepal oblong or ovate, 1.5–3.3 mm long. Female inner tepals oblong or ovate, 1.5–3.3 mm long. Staminodes absent. Styles feathery, white or pink or red, 2. Style bases fused to form a pillar. Ovary with 1 locule, dehiscent. Fruit: seed (0.88–)1(–1.16) mm long, (0.68–)0.73(–0.8) mm in diameter, shape in side view elliptical, shape in diameter round in cross section, translucent or yellow (seed coat translucent and seed underneath looks yellow), colliculate.
