Requesting to please ID this grass captured at Kanheri Caves, SGNP in Sep 2014.

Seems to be an Ischaemum sp.

There are two species of Ischaemum in these photos. The inflorescences in 5554 (two racemes are yet to separate) and 5557 (both racemes separated wide apart) are of Ischaemum indicum, whereas the leaves seen in 5553 are of Ischaemum semisagittatum, where the leaf base is seen sagittate.

Dicanthium sp.?

A wild guess Ischaemum indicum (Houtt.) Merr.

Images at efi and net leads to correct ID !

Ischaemum indicum is right

Not Polytrias genus. I think the synonymy with Polytrias indica should not be considered as Polytrias is entirely different from Ischaemum.
