Thanks for showing another species of the genus. I knew only colona and crus-galli

Satish ji, i like the idea of keeping graph sheet as background, which is very useful to know the size of spikelets.

Yes Vijayasankar ji
It is a very good idea. Macros really confuse you about size. Now perhaps I will carry a graph sheet with me on trips.

Yes Gurcharan ji,
 
While providing both horizontal and vertical measurements, the graph sheet also gives a different and good-looking backround instead of traditional plain colour! we used to use this during college days while dissecting flower parts.
 
I am waiting to get a break to hunt for my grass pictures.
Regards

I used to have a black A4 sized wooden light board with black rough
colour and a piece of graph paper at one corner. Wwhatever plant I
got, I used to keep it on the board in parts or complete to take some
pictures, apart from the normal habitat shots.
It really helps a lot later during morphometrics.
Thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful pic of the beautiful plant.
Regards
Pankaj

Echinochloa frumentacea (Roxb.) Link Hort. Berol. 1: 204. 1827.

Basionym:
Panicum frumentaceum Roxb. Hort. Bengal. 7. 1814.

Syn:


Panicum crusgalli var. frumentaceum Hook. f., Fl. Brit. India 7: 31, 1896.


Sathish sir, I think there would be an issue in synonymy of this taxa.
Before Hook.f. Roxburgh already described this taxa in Hortus
Bengalensis, thought in Flora of British India Hook.f. mentions Flora
Indica which was published later. Hence the basionym should be
Roxburgh's Hortus Bengalensis and not Hook.f's as written at many
places.
