Notes on Flowering in Schizostachyum arunachalensis H. B. Naithani (Poaceae:Bambusoideae)


During present study Schizostachyum arunachalensis was found flowering and fruiting in the wild on the hill slopes in Kane Wildlife Sanctuary of West Siang district (Arunachal Pradesh). A good population was observed near Magee village which is about 10 km from Elephant Camp. This bamboo can be easily distinguished by long internodes, larger leaves and peculiar leaf sheaths. A supplemented taxonomic description of this bamboo is provided. In light of flowering and fruiting material available now, its taxonomic placement in the new genus Stapletonia has been suggested, a new combination has been proposed, and coloured photographs have been provided to facilitate identification.
