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.

Trying to post some images with inadequate data. Hoping to get to near ID so that I can study further.

Beautiful shots …  It may be Chrysopogon gryllus, But let’s wait for experts’ comments…

Please indicate height and habit of the plant. It is Chrysopogon sp. But not C.gryllus as the pedicels of the pedicelled spikelets are very hairy. Probably C.fulvus if a medium sized grass. A full view would help.
