Carex vernacula L.H. Bailey[FNA23, HC2, SPNW]
foetid sedge

Publication: Bull. Torrey Bot. Club. 20: 417. 1893.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA23: "Carex vernacula is very similar to and often united with the European C. foetida Allioni, which has serrulate-margined perigynium beak and proportionately longer leaves. The numerous distinctions drawn between these two by K. K. Mackenzie (1931–1935, parts 2–3, pp. 29–30) have not proved consistent with examination of more material."
