Carex breweri Boott[FNA23, HC, HC2, SPNW]
Brewer's sedge

Publication: Ill. Carex. 142, plate 455. 1867.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA23: "A. Cronquist (1969) considered Carex breweri and C. engelmannii conspecific; he distinguished them at the varietal level by a difference in pistillate scale characters. The correlated differences in perigynium shape and veins, the dimensions of most structures, and the foliar anatomy support their retention as distinct species."
