- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 4,463 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Subtribe Setariinae.
Axonopus is a genus of grasses known generally as carpetgrass. They are native to the tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. They are sometimes rhizomatous and many are tolerant of periodic submersion. [more]
Annual or perennial. Leaf blades linear to lanceolate, often with cartilaginous margins. Inflorescence composed of racemes along a central axis; raceme rachis triquetrous or flattened, sometimes winged; spikelets sessile or pedicelled, single or paired, rarely in fascicles or on secondary racemelets. Spikelets plump, usually elliptic, florets 2; lower glume adaxial, varying in length from very small and veinless to many-veined and subequaling spikelet, base sheathing, sometimes extended downward as a short stipe; upper glume and lower lemma similar, as long as spikelet, membranous or cartilaginous; upper lemma coriaceous, smooth, striate or rugose, margins inrolled, apex obtuse to acute, occasionally minutely mucronate; upper palea apex tucked within lemma. x = 7, 9.

Echinochloa is a grass genus, some of whose members are millets grown as cereal or fodder crops. The most notable of these are Japanese Millet (E. esculenta) in East Asia, Indian barnyard Millet (E. frumentacea) in South Asia and Burgu Millet (E. stagnina) in West Africa. Collectively the members of this genus are called barnyard grasses (though this may also refer to E. crus-galli specifically), barnyard millets or billion-dollar grasses. [more]
Panicum is a large genus of about 450 species of grasses native throughout the tropical regions of the world, with a few species extending into the northern temperate zone. They are large, annual or perennial grasses, growing to 1-3 m tall. [more]
Paspalum is a genus of the grass family (Poaceae). Commonly known as paspalums, bahiagrasses or dallis grasses most are tall perennial American grasses. They are most diverse in subtropical and tropical regions. [more]
Setaria is a genus of grass in the Poaceae family. It contains the following species: [more]
At least 453 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Setaria.
