Taxonomy of endemic dwarf grass Oropetium villosulum Stapf ex Bor, an overlooked cohabitant of Oropetium thomaeum (L.f.) Trin.– Nagaraju Siddabathula, Ravi Kiran Arigela, Rajeev Kumar Singh & P.V. Prasanna- NeBIO September 2019  10(3): 168174 (Abstract: The endemic dwarf grass Oropetium villosulum Stapf ex Bor hitherto known strictly from the Western Ghats of Karnataka and Maharashtra is reported here as an addition to the flora of Telangana based on collections from Ranga Reddy, Vikarabad and Yadadri Bhuvanagiri districts. This species coexists with its closely allied species, O. thomaeum and both species also produce flowers and fruits during the same period. Detailed descriptions and coloured photo plates of dissected microscopic floral parts of these two species are provided here to distinguish them unambiguously. Furthermore, lectotype for the name O. thomaeum (L.f.) Trin. (≡ Nardus thomaea L.f.) is designated)
