Bulbostylis barbata Kunth, FBI. vi. 651. is unresolved in KEW.

(If you search synonyms of 1st above you will find both the above two are same!)
FoC supports the 2nd above, but draws FBI. vi. 651 –
FoP also features this, but note the marked difference in culm length, compared to FoC –
I found this sedge in front of our school, on sandy patch, again around the rain-water pool.
