until recently was in Dendrocalamus. Supposed to get to 70' tall and 4" culm diameter.. known for it's straight, hard culms- excellent for construction. Only example I've seen didn't have very straight culms, though. Hope it was identified properly (should have been since it was in Quail Gardens in southern California, known for their bamboo research).
