Abstract

Arberella, a new genus of bambusoid grasses, is established, based on the newly described species. A. dressleri. Also belonging to this new genus are the taxa originally named Olyra flaccida and Raddia costaricensis and several new species from Panama and Brazil which will be described later. The new genus is presented in a key to the genera of the tribe Olyreae, of which it is a member, and a key is given to the three species treated in this paper.
