What is the beautiful grass all around Smithia?


may be Heteropogon contortus

Amboli, MH :: Smithia for ID :: ARK2021-107:
This was seen at Amboli hill station, MH in Aug 2021.

Seems to be some Smithia.
Requested to please provide ID.

Most of this sp. has red patch on the corolla. Side views of flower, buds and stem

would have helped much for ID. Just a guess Smithia bigemina Dalzell !


Thank you …, I too think, this is S. bigemina.
