Hooghly - Cyperus pilosus Vahl ? : Attachments (7). 4 posts by 2 authors.
I have found this sedge today (25.9.13), in a flooded paddy field.
About 3 ft tall and looks similar to what I have identified/suggested as C. digitatus Roxb. But this looks more closer to Satyendra Ji's photographs.
A closer look at the inflorescence of this one and the one i marked as C. digitatus Roxb. gives some differences. The inflorescence here is not exactly digitate (P1060510.jpg & P1060510b.jpg). In addition, the spikes are lax, shorter. One can even see purplish colour in some of the glumes (P1060510b.jpg).
I am sorry i could not get closer to this sedge so that i could record macro of spikelets.
Can it be Cyperus pilosus Vahl (should be found all over India)?
Yes, this is Cyperus pilosus Vahl
