Fruit morphological characteristics of Chimonobambusa ningnanica Hsueh et LZ. Gao and Chimonocalamus delicatus Hsueh et Yi have not been reported so far. Meanwhile, the previous description on fruit morphological characteristics of Dendrocalamus yunnanicus Hsueh et DZ. Li was based on mistaken species identification. Here we presented the fruit morphological characteristics of these three bamboo species according to new specimens collected in Yunnan Province, China. The results of this study will increase our understanding on bamboo fruit characters, and provide more detailed information for the revision of Bambusoideae monographs in the future.

Key words: Bambusoideae, Chimonobambusa ningnanica, Chimonocalamus delicatus, Dendrocalamus yunnanicus, Fruit morphology
