Identification of grass requested. : 6 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (2)
I am attaching 2 images of a grass species collected from high altitudes at Easternghats.
the plant is about 50 cm in height. 

Pseudanthistiria hirta

Thank you …, for your efforts, but the plant list or Gamble FPM has no such species, whether it has any synonyms. I am thankful to you if my doubt is clarified.

need free specimens for identification. interesting species for me  

A specimen was handed over to BSI Deccan circle for identification, they too could not, only 2 plants are located in the interior, if I could I will collect more

If I get free specimens of above grass (with inflorescence) then I could try for name. My tentative remark about grass is seems to be interesting species. 

Sorry, the species name was spelt wrongly. It is Pseudanthisthiria hispida.
