Black-grass is Alopecurus myosuroides.

I was going to say that in my ID but clicked the button to post the ID prematurely, and couldn't go back to edit it to add in the extra thoughts. I was wondering if DSLR actually intended Alopecurus myosuroides, i.e. primarily calling it Black-grass and adding the wrong Latin name - as the photo shows a plant that is slender and has black bits.

But as we are agreed, it is not a grass at all.
No disrespect to DSLR, confusion of grasses and the grassier-looking sedges is a stage we all go though during the learning process.
