Carex engelmannii L.H. Bailey[FNA23, HC2, SPNW]
Mt. Adams sedge

Publication: Proc. Amer. Acad. Arts. 22: 132. 1887 (as engelmanni).

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA23: "Carex engelmannii occurs north and east of the range of C. breweri; both species occur on Mt. Adams, Washington. Carex engelmannii is most similar to C. subnigricans. It differs in the inrolled scale margins, the larger, sessile perigynia, the stipitate achene, and leaf cross sectional shape. It occurs in drier habitats usually to the north and east of the range of C. subnigricans. Relationships among the three species placed in the section, as well as their relationships to other unispicate sections, should be studied further."
