Ecology and distribution
Trop. Afr.
Biology : Genus of some 120 (100-150 spp.; cf. Goetghebeur 1998: 167; or c. 213 spp., Prata & al. in Phytotaxa 314: 219, 2017; Roalson & al. in Taxon 67: 642, 2018: 215 spp.) in the tropics and subtropics of both hemispheres, especially in tropical Africa and S. America. “Within the tribe Abildgaardieae, the relationships between Fimbristylis and its relatives have not been certain, and the limits of Fimbristylis have been unclear, with Bulbostylis and Abildgaardia variously combined with it and each other” (Ghamkhar & al. 2007: 149).
