Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: Juncus lesueurii orth. (misspelled, see Lint 1977, pp 149-150)

The epithet lescurii was published by Bolander in 1862 as "leseurii", and indexed "lesueurii," both are typographical errors for the latinized version of Leo Lesquereaux, corrected under Article 73 of the ICBN to lescurii, which is how Bolander spelled the epithet in his 1870 catalogue of plants in the San Francisco area (Lint 1977). Juncus lescurii is endemic to the San Francisco area.
