- glomeruli florum inferiores remoti, superiores approximati, omnes folio suffulti, glomerules (clusters of capitula with an involuvre) of flowers lower remote, upper close toegether, all by a leaf subtended (Stearn).

- flores glomerulorum terminalium rigide bracteatorum sessiles, centrales perfecti, laterales solitarii ad sépala 2 bracteaeformia [sic] reducti, v. 3 centrali masculo (B&H), the flowers of the rigidly bracteate terminal glomerules sessile, the central ones perfect, the lateral solitary reducted to 2 bract-like sepals, or with the [third-central flower masculine].

- glomeruli pedunculati, post anthesin in capitula globosa sepalis abortivis rigide setigera transformati (B&H), the glomerules pedunculate, after flowering transformed into globose heads with undeveloped rigidly bristle-bearing sepals.

- glomerulis in spicas cylindraceas terminales aphyllas dense congestis (F.Mueller), with the glomerules densely congested into cylindric, terminal, leafless spikes.

- glomerulis inferioribus solitarii, superioribus in spicas simplices et compositas congestis (F. Mueller), with the lower glomerules solitary, the upper congested into simple and compound spikes.

- Ustilago minuta conferta in glomerulos collecta subrotunda dilute ochrea (S&A), a minute, crowded Ustilago, collected into glomerules, subrotund, washed-out ochreous.
