Gymnostachyum febrifugum:  sending photo for identification


Image is not clear but it is seems to be Gymnostachyum febrifugum Benth. var. febrifugum.


It was taken by me some 10 years ag when I started learning plant photography with ordinary Kodak. Probably you are right. it is used in treatment of fevers.  It is Toxic in high doses.
