Kerriochloa is a genus of Southeast Asian plants in the grass family.[5] The only known species is Kerriochloa siamensis, native to Thailand and Vietnam.[2][6]

The genus name of Kerriochloa is in honour of Arthur Francis George Kerr (1877–1942), an Irish medical doctor.[7] The Latin specific epithet of siamensis means coming from Siam (the old name for Thailand.[8] Both genus and species were first described and published in Hooker's Icon.
