What is Dubia?

Dubia is the common term used for specimens you are not sure about. It is a common practice in herbaria to have a Dubia genus folder at the end of a family including specimens whose family is known but not the genus/genera. Similarly if genus is known but not the species, a dubia species folder is added at the end of that genus to include all such specimens. In my computer I have a dubia folder for each higher folder (Delhi, Kashmir, California, Chakrata, etc.) containing such unidentified photographs.

DSC01421 is Chrysopogon fulvus

We need to go through keys for sp.,

Chrysopogon fulvus 

Peninsular species were identified as Chrysopogon serrulatus, but there is a continuous variation observed as one travels from peninsular India to Himalayas. Hence presently, both fulvus and serrulatus are considered as same species. C.fulvus has priority in nomenclature.
