As per Bor's GBCIP key, it is Brachiaria setigera as there are only 3 nerves on the lower glume. There are sparse bristles on the pedicels and very few bristles on the rachis and the spikelets are hairy. In case of B.ramosa, the lower glume is at least 5 nerved and there are dense bristles on the rachis as well. The species is confusing as POWO and various other images show something different from the key.
