Keywords:Germainia, Balansa, Poitrasson, Gramineae, study in Thai flora
A revision is given of Germainia BALANSA & POITRASSON (Gramineae-Andropogoneae) and it is attempted to give the genus its correct taxonomic position. Sclerandrium C.E. HUBBARD and Chumsriella BOR are reduced. Nine species have been accepted, one remained dubious, one is reduced to synonymy and one is transfered to Apocopis NEES. A new species endemic to Thailand is described.
