That looks a lot like Bermuda but I’m unreliable, at best.

@jerrit that does look like a japonica variety. I have no idea if there is any hope of removing it from Emerald. Any suggestions, @Greendoc?

Square off an area larger than where you see that Japonica growing. Apply Glyphosate 3 times 2 weeks apart while maintaining irrigation in that area. Plug or sod Emerald Zoysia back in that area
