Sir,

I share images of a grass I came across today, at a place near Dankuni, Hooghly.

It is around 10 ft., taller than Arundo donax, that I recorded quite a few years ago, and the leaves and culms are narrower in this species.

Please, identify the species.

Thank you.

With regards,

Surajit Koley

Amplexicaul leaf base is a character of Arundo donax and not in Phragmites.
Another way to differentiate is to check whether the hairs are on the lemmas (Arundo) or whether the hairs are on the rachis (Phragmites)

Thank you Manoj Sir for explaining the differences between the two species. Hope, someday I will find Phragmites karka!

Thanks Garg Sir for taking care of it.
