30Aug2014: I had another look on the 26th. The leaves are up to 25cm long, and 2mm wide, without any discernable ligule. The spiculescences are 1 to 2 cm long; I counted the number of utricles in the spikelets of a sample spiculescence as 7, 7, 6, 6 and 12 - I suspect that I failed to separate ultimate and penultimate spikelets.
