Looking for Wild Dallisgrass Seedheads    (Posted Tue, Aug 19 '08 at 12:07 UTC)

Dallisgrass grows as a common weed and a pasture grass in the Southern and Mid-Atlantic States. In rainier areas and years its seed head commonly becomes infected with a mold that can be whitish and brown or with black nodules. I need these moldy tops for research.

Here are some good pics for identification:
