Sclerostachya fusca A. Camus (Saccharum fuscum Roxb.) is a grass closely related to Saccharum spontaneum and similar to it in habit. It is distinguished from Saccharum by its rachis being tough instead of fragile and by its pedicelled spikelets being female instead of hermaphrodite. (The sessile spikelets in both are hermaphrodite.)
