Abstract [en]

Pennisetum longistylum, recently stated to be an older name for the well-known P. clandestinum (Cenchrus clandestinus), is shown to be a hybrid between P. clandestinum and P. villosum (C. longisetus). This is a rare hybrid only known from a few gatherings from the highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea, the most recent one made in 1916. The new combination Cenchrus xlongistylus is proposed, and the names P. clandestinum and P. villosum are lectotypified.
