Thank you in Advance…

Not sure. Cyperus tenuispica Steud. ??

Thank You …!!

But I think It is close to C. pilosus as per its inflorescence.

May be! That was just my guess.

You should have suggested possibility earlier with the post.

I was unaware about that while posting that for ID
…I got it just now while I searched your suggestions….I just want to share it and confirm…

This can be Cyperus pilosus or Cyperus procerus. Require specimen to confirm the identity.


Sedge for ID : Way to Nasik : 28JUL21 : AK-10: 2 images.
Seen while travelling on the Mumbai-Nasik highway last week (28.7.21)

This can be Cyperus pilosus Vahl or C. procerus Rottb. Specimen needs to be examined to confirm the identity.

May I request you to pl. post high res. images.
