Author's notes

More fruiting than flowering, though the inflorescence still looked black and fresh, not hayed off. The last photo shows the ring of brown glands around the base of the inflorescence and below the node that is typical of this species. I couldn't detect any smell to it, though "stinkgrass" suggests it has one.

If you rub the flower/seed-head between your fingers, your fingers will have a bad smell afterward.
