Abstract

Background and aims – Within the framework of the renewed production of the Flore d’Afrique centrale, the grasses are being studied to accomplish their treatment. Taxonomic novelties, or other information not deemed appropriate in a Flora, are published in a series of separate papers of which this is the second.
Methods – Standard herbarium techniques have been applied to material from BR, BRLU, GENT, P and WAG. Some types were studied through the JSTOR Global Plant facility.
Key results – Novelties are presented for the genera Anthephora, Cenchrus (incl. Pennisetum) and Setaria. Three new combinations are made. Lectotypes are designated for five names. Ten names are treated as new synonyms of accepted species names, with explanations of the new taxonomic concepts applied.
