Zizaniopsis Döll & Ascherson. Subfamily: Oryzoideae. Tribe: Oryzeae. Subtribe: Zizaniinae. clade: "BOP". Giant Cutgrass.

A genus of about 5 species, of tropical and subtropical America. Other than our species, the other species are South American.

ID notes: Superficially similar to Zizania in its habitat and large size, Zizaniopsis may be distinguished by its very different inflorescence and by its stout horizontal rhizomes (our taxa of Zizania are annual and not rhizomatous).
