Genus & species : Cyperus ?

This does not appear to be cyperus. Maybe some other genus.
May be. Thank You Sir.
Looks like Rhynchospora corymbosa of Cyperaceae
Does it not look different from Rhynchospora corymbosa as per images at ?:
Can it be some Actinoscirpus species like Actinoscirpus grossus (L.f.) Goetgh. & D.A.Simpson?
The Rhynchospora images in each of the above links looks different and hence is confusing.
A feedback from another post:
Could this be Scirpus sylvaticus the wood clubrush, the pictures are similar.
I am no Cyperus expert, just that the Genus has many Aquatic Cyperus, some of which are even sold in Aquarium trade Cyperus helferi, (seems to be a new craze in Mumbai Aquarium shops) and many like Scirpus mucronatus, use knife like Leaves to puncture water lilies, Schonoplectella articulata are ghost like and strange.
Another possibility is Woodland Bulrush (Scirpus expansus) photo attached
