Dichanthium annulatum x Bothriochloa bladhii

(Andropogon grahamii Haines in Kew Bull. 1914: 189. 1914; Bothriochloa grahamii (Haines) Bor, Grasses Ceyl. Ind. Pak. 107. 1960) occurs sporadically wherever the parents grow together. It can be recognised by the following combination of characters: sheaths often inflated; internodes and pedicels solid or shallowly grooved on the adaxial surface; homogamous spikelet pairs absent; lower glume of sessile spikelet without pits; axis of inflorescence longer or shorter than lowest raceme.

In Pakistan it has been recorded only from the Punjab (Sargodha, Sheikhupura and Ladhar. Specimens all collected by Sultan Ahmad in 1935-6).
