Fimbristylis littoralis Gand. ? from Hooghly 7/8/12 SK:

Could this be Fimbristylis littoralis Gand. ?
Species : UNKNOWN
Habit & Habitat : growing in pond edge, about 1 foot tall, culm flat & four angled
Date : 22/7/12, 10.06 A.M.
Place : Nalikul (Hooghly)
Links used in attempt to ID :

attaching 3 more pictures recorded on 19/8/12 at the same place. Attachments (3).

It looks like Fimbristylis littoralis Gaudich. Butspecimen of the plant has to be checked to confirm the identity.

I have doubt about the identity of this plant. There is a closely related species Fimbristylis umbellaris (Lam.) Vahl. So it is better to confirm the identity at the Central National Herbarium, Howrah by matching the specimens.

Thanks to … again, As far as I can remember, and also can be guessed by the attached picture, the culm is four angled and since it was found beside fresh-water (pond) this is possibly either Fimbristylis quinquangularis (Vahl) Kunth or F miliacea (L.) Vahl or both!

But, I do not rule out F. littoralis as well.

here is the picture. Attachments (1).

This looks like F. miliacea (L.) Vahl, as in plants.minibird

Since this is an annual, having 4-angled culm it may be Fimbristylis quinquangularis subsp. quinquangularis, current accepted name of the Fimbristylis miliacea (L.) Vahl.,
