(i)

MICRAIROIDEAE is a subfamily of the grass family Poaceae , distributed in tropical and subtropical regions. Within the PACMAD clade , it is sister to subfamily Arundinoideae
Arundinoideae
.

It includes roughly 190 species in nine genera. A phylogenetic classification of the grasses recognises four main lineages, classified as tribes . Only species in tribe Eriachneae (genera Eriachne and Pheidochloa ) have evolved the C4 photosynthetic pathway .
