Cleistogenes ramiflora Keng fil. & C. P. Wang

Morphology

    Comments
    provided by eFloras
    No material of this species has been seen. The description is taken from the protologue. The spikelets are very similar to those of Cleisto-genes mucronata, but the habit is different, as shown in the illustration accompanying the protologue, with softly ascending leaf blades of more or less equal length throughout.
