Again from my village, photographed today. (3.10.14)
Another set recorded yesterday at another place. It is fairly common and I wonder why i missed it earlier. I am now pretty sure that it is Brachiaria subquadripara (Trin.) Hitchc. as in –
Brachiaria miliiformis. Though some consider it as a synonym of B.subquadripara, I believe that B.s is different.
