CAYUGA FLORA (1926) NOTES: Marl meadows and marly swales; scarce. June-July 15. Larch Meadow (D.); Dryden Lake (D. in C.U. Herb.); McLean Bogs (D. !); border of Chicago Bog; Lake Como (Locke Pond, F. L. Kilborne in C.U. Herb.); Union Springs (D.); Newton Ponds; marshes, Tyre; Miller Bog, Spring Lake. Lab. to Alaska, southw. to D. C, Ind., Tex., and in the western mts. Found also in Eurasia. This species differs from C. stricta in the stoloniferous habit, nonfibrous lower sheaths, glaucous color, smooth culms, and foliaceous lower bract which much overtops the staminate spike. All the specimens from this region have broader leaves, less firm lower sheaths, and paler scales, than material from Newfoundland and Canada, and are probably C. substricta Mackenzie. All the American material seen has acutely angled culms.
