Phleum paniculatum Huds, Photographed from Srinagar Kashmir, often found as weed at lower altitudes.
I would have definitely said Phalaris minor on seeing the above photographs, this is so close…thanks for showing..
This is Phalaris minor
Thanks … for correction. I had not known about Phalaris minor when in Kashmir, and saw it for the first time in Delhi.
As reported in FBI Phalaris minor does not ascend above 1500 m. This was growing at alt of 1700 m. May be it has now extended to Kashmir valley.
We had similar plant collected from Srinagar and Ladakh which I had identified as Phleum paniculatum. I am uploading both for confirmation.
The plant was collected from Salbari, P. O. : Sukna. Dist.: Darjeeling. West Bengal.
looking like phalaris minor
Thank you very much sir
The 2nd pic features Phalaris sp., cf. P. miima. 1st pic probably initial stage of the same.
