Dalia Di,

Don't have any idea about grasses (or any plant). I searched all species mentioned in the reference book i use. None matches with these pictures.

Regards,

Surajit Koley

Dear Respected Members,

I searched Panicum spp, that can be found in West Bengal. Info available at - http://kuedu.academia.edu/ProfSobhanKrMukherjee/Papers/978575/DIVERSITY_OF_GRASS_FLORA_OF_WEST_BENGAL_INDIA_WITH_SPECIAL_REFERENCE_TO_THEIR_UTILITY gives me following Panicum species - 

Panicum atrosanguineum Hochst. ex. Rich.
Panicum auritum Presl. ex. Nees.
Panicum brevifolium L.
Panicum curuiflorum Horneman
Panicum elegantissimum Hook.
Panicum humidorum Buch.
Panicum khasianum Munro ex. Hook.
Panicum legantissimum Hook.
Panicum maximum Jacq.
Panicum miliaceum L.
Panicum notatum Retz.
Panicum paludosum Roxb.
Panicum psilopodium Trin
Panicum repens L.
Panicum sarmentosum Roxb.
Panicum smuatrense Roth. ex. Roem & Schult
Panicum trypheron Schult.
Panicum walense. Mez.

Out of the species mentioned above P. maximum, P. paludosum, P. repens, P. sarmentosumP. typheron are my choice, based upon google search. But Panicum maximum is a big grass and it is not likely to be my species here. Panicum sermentosum is stated as sandy soil inhabitant. Panicum paludosum is marsh inhabitant. That leaves me either P. repens or P. trypheron.

Description and images of Panicum repens can be found -

The words "gaping spikelets" draws my attention.

Thank you & Regards,

Surajit Koley
