Cyperus iria L., Sp. Pl. 45 1753. (syn: Chlorocyperus iria (L.)

As per efi thread:
Both looks very similar. Identity can be confirmed by checking the specimens.
Rachis of spikes glabrous and keel of the glumes smooth (not spinulose ciliate) ……. C. iria
Rachis of spikes hispid on angles and keel of the glumes spinulose ciliate …….. C. alulatus
Spikes finally reflexed; glumes 1.5-2 mm ….. Cyperus alulatus
Spikes suberect; glumes 1-1.5 mm ……. Cyperus iria
not Cyperus iria:
I think due to observing the image it is Cyperus iria

A sedge. I hope Cyperus iria, although not very sure.

Wonderful photographs. I remember observing this on open lands. Used to play with this widely growing grass and making boundaries all around it and calling it as rice fields during my childhood.

ID request for a grass -reg : 6 posts by 3 authors. Attachments (1).
Kindly identify this grass collected from Sullia in Dakshina Kannada district of Karnataka.
I will be grateful if some one posts a picture of Actinoscirpus grossus.
This is Cyperaceae member
May I suggest a probability – Cyperus iria L.?
Not a grass but a sedge – Cyperaceae, probably Cyperus iria
To me it looks rather like Cyperus iria than that of Actinoscirpus grossus herbarium at KEW or illustrations available at FoC.
It is Cyperus iria L.
Identification: 2 images.
Photos of Cyperus attached herewith. Both found in a pot as received . Kindly confirm its id.
Pl. post high res. images to check the details.
Appears to be Cyperus alulatus J. Kern (if rachis of the spikes hispid and keel of the glumes spinulose-ciliate) otherwise Cyperus iria L.
Can you confirm whether rachis of the spikes if hispid or not?
Need sedge ID: droopy racemes: 3 images.
Thanks, …, for id as Cyperus iria
