This inflorescence was shot from Chakrata area, I regret for not having any leaf pics or other details..
wanted to know the id, if this can be done with these pics only…


An input received points to Ophiuros exaltatus…thank you very much …


efi page on Ophiuros exaltatus 


This grass is Phacelurus speciosus found above 2500m not very common. Found in steep slopes and landslide areas. Good fodder and hence found in areas where herbivores cannot reach easily. We have also successfully tried to bring it to cultivation in Deoban nursery above Chakarata.


Thanks a lot … for follow up… many thanks … for details and identification…
