Setaria glauca (L.) P.Beauv.;
Setaria pumila is similar to S.glauca, but has smaller spikelets (upto 2.25mm long) than S.glauca (3mm long).The wrinlkes on the upper glume are fine in S.pumila and coarse in S.glauca. S.glauca is also considered a polyploid form of S.pumila, with 2n=18 for pumila and 2n=36 for glauca. Though both the species are found throughout India, S.pumila is the common grass out of the two in peninsular India whereas S.glauca is more common in the Gangetic plain and sub Himalayan tracts 
Setaria pumila is a species of peninsular India which for most authors is S.glauca. In Bor’s GBCIP, S. pumila is named S. pallidae-fusca with synonymous to P. glaucum non L. and S. glauca non P.Beauv.
In the indo-gangetic plain and Himalayas, we find S. glauca (L.) P.Beauv based on Panicum glaucum L. 
That is also the reason why Bajra should not be called Pennisetum glaucum, but be called Pennisetum americanum

Thanks, …, I hope you mean it to be Setaria glauca auct. & not Setaria glauca (L.) P. Beauv.

Kindly confirm.


I mean S. glauca (L.)P.Beauv.

Setaria pumila is a species of peninsular India which for most authors is S.glauca. In Bor’s GBCIP, S. pumila is named S. pallidae-fusca with synonymous to P. glaucum non L. and S. glauca non P.Beauv.
In the indo-gangetic plain and Himalayas, we find S. glauca (L.) P.Beauv based on Panicum glaucum L. 
That is also the reason why Bajra should not be called Pennisetum glaucum, but be called Pennisetum americanum

Setaria glauca


My earlier upload of Setaria glauca (https://groups.google.com/forum/?hl=en-GB#!topic/indiantreepix/W4008xcep0g) have few differences with my present upload (species). I have collected both the specimen from different places of same district. The height of the my first specimen is more than the present one. Also there are some differences in leaf, colour of the inflorescence etc. Please clarify my confusion.

This is also Setaria, can’t say species without detail, maybe S. pumilahttps://groups.google.com/d/msg/indiantreepix/s_LE4Zj0FjQ/iDfDqyFnbvMJ

Please check the discussion


Yes it looks like Setaria glauca


I think, it is Setaria pumila


Comparing spikelets in … S. pumila with my S. glauca I think it is S. glauca for its acute lemma.


Yes it is.

Thanks, … for id as Setaria pumila

Is there a possibility of Setaria glauca as per efi thread ?


Generally Setaria glauca having longer Raceme while S. pumila not.


Most likely Setaria glauca due to the comparatively large spikelets compared to the bristles. Also, more curved profile of spikelets. Setaria glauca usually have larger and longer spikes, but varies a lot depending on season, variety, soil conditions, grazing incidence, etc and sometimes are as small as Setaria pumila spikes, but the spikelets remain larger (3mm). Setaria pumila is found more in peninsular India, has smaller spikelets (2.25mm) with less curved profile. It can be confirmed if the measurement of the spikelets are taken. You can take a closeup photo of a spikelet kept on a scale/graph paper. Another identification feature is the rugose (wrinkled) upper lemma. It is more wrinkled in glauca and finer in pumila. But to know that, one has to keep both species side by side and observe. I also have an opinion that Setaria pumila is the original diploid species whereas Setaria glauca is the improved tetraploid variety in cultivation and also escaping into the wild and sometimes reverting into diploidy. However, the abundance of Setaria pumila in South and peninsular India and abundance of Setaria glauca in Northern India is also a mystery, may be due to environmental factors. Since Setaria is a cultivated fodder, several hybrids also exist.


Thank you very much … for forwarding to me the enlightening mail of … regarding the two grasses.

Seteria pumila


Thank you …!
Setaria pumila (Poir.) Roem. & Schult.

Nepali Name : कागुने झार Kaagune Jhaar  / कनिके कागुनो Kanike Kaaguno


Setaria pumila is similar to S.glauca, but has smaller spikelets (upto 2.25mm long) than S.glauca (3mm long). The wrinlkes on the upper glume are fine in S.pumila and coarse in S.glauca. S.glauca is also considered a polyploid form of S.pumila, with 2n=18 for pumila and 2n=36 for glauca. Though both the species are found throughout India, S.pumila is the common grass out of the two in peninsular India whereas S.glauca is more common in the Gangetic plain and sub Himalayan tracts 

What about the ID of the sp. … ?


The colour and size looks closer to S. pumila but to be sure measurements and observations of floral parts is needed.


… can give the final word.


Seeing the relative size of the spikelets to the bristles and the locality, I would go with Setaria glauca. I am yet to find any Setaria pumila in Northern part of the Indian subcontinent.


Setaria glauca Kunth or Setaria glauca (L.) P.Beauv. ??
