Can it be any Calamagrostis species?
I couldn’t find any similar looking pic in the net. Moreover, the leaves of various Calamagrostis in FoC are much bigger. So, it seems to be some other grass.
Is the scale showing centimeter or inches? Kindly post a clear close up image of spikelets after manually separating or deflexing it away from the rachis. Also see whether the spikelets are paired and if so whether one is sessile and other is pedicelled or all are similar. Kindly do the dissection of the spikelet and post. Or you can send me a sample of the inflorescence.
Scale appears to be in Cm.
For the time being I can only say that the scale shown in the picture is in centimeter.
Can this species be related to Pseudoraphis, like P. minuta?
Could it be Leersia oryzoides?
It has characters of several general like Pseudoraphis, Hygrorhyza, Hymenachne, etc.
I suggest you could collect it again and try to see the characters in detail to confirm. Probably, It could be a described as a new species.
I love to read your analysis, … I will try my best to follow your suggestion to find this grass once again and obtain as much detailed data as I can.
I thank you very much for taking care of all my uploads, as well as providing me the most valuable feedback on each species. Without your tutorials I would never had dared to record any grass species.
Thank you … for your unique patience and utmost care.
