Identify this grass sir. Taken at Horsley Hills at 1230 msl.  22-12-2017

It looks like Aristida species; in the absence of description, or detailed image of spike it is difficult to identify


It seems Saccharum bengalense 


It seems to be Garnotia elata


This is Garnotia scoparia. This species is included in Garnotia elata in Flora of Madras by Gamble.
