Fimbristylis squarrosa Vahl ?

It can be Fimbristylis bisumbellata (Forssk.) Bubani or F. squarrosa Vahl, need a specimen to confirm the identity.

It is difficult to select one between the two ids. The KEY starts with stle-base –;
However, I would go for Fimbristylis squarrosa Vahl, for its pubescent and markedly longer (than inflorescence) involucral bracts and spreading spikelets.
