Trop. Afr.
Biology : Tufted annual herb 5-45 cm tall with many stems 0,7 mm wide, deeply ridged, glabrous to densely shortly pubescent; leaf sheaths glabrous to densely hairy; blades 5-15 cm long, 0,5 mm wide, densely hairy or glabrous, or with short spine-like hairs; inflore
Ecology : Wet rocks and flushes in wooded grassland; peat pans at base of granite outcrops; silty roadside ditches; seasonally wet soils, especially on shallow soils over rocks; 900-2700 m alt.
  Fimbristylis sp. sensu Wickens, Fl. Jebel Marra, on riverbanks, represents perhaps this species (Darbyshire & al., Pl. Sudan & S. Sudan: 102, 2015).
