uncertain identification by Stephen Lemon 12/2/2016
|Other name:||Cyperaceae: Carex elata All. ("Tufted-sedge")|
|Filed in taxon folder:||Cyperaceae: Carex elata All. ("Tufted-sedge")|
|Collected by:||Mr William Hadden Beeby|
|Locality:||Great Britain, VC17 Surrey, Hedgecourt Lake, TQ3540, The plant forms large, dense, tufts; but I can detect no fibrillae at the base of stem. The plant is usually submerged, + Mr Alfred Fryer thinks that when this is the case, the fibrillae are often absent. If the further specimens enable a definite opinion|

|notes:||Propter margines foliorum siccitaterevolutus haec forma ad C. strictam est referena; fructuo habitusque, E. Goodenoughiis in memoriam revocantur, var. turfosum (Fr. p[ro] p[arte]) Almqu. indicant. At maxime memorabilis, quod, quamquam caespitose crescit, fibrillae desunt, quod non nisi in solitariis specimenibus vidi. Num in loco natali transitus in C. strictam typicam invenire liceat – [??] hybrida stricta x goodenowi visenda - Hac res in vivo exploranda. S. Almquist [Because the margins of the leaves in a dried state are revolute, this form is referable to C. stricta [= C. elata]; the fruits and habit, recalling C. Goodenowii [C.nigra], indicate var. turfosum (Fr. p.p [= pro parte, in part)] Almqu[ist]] . But then, most memorably [noticeably], although it is growing in tufts, fibrils are lacking, which I have seen only in solitary specimens. Whether in its place of origin a transition to typical C. stricta may be allowable – and the hybrid stricta x goodenowii is to be discovered - this issue is to be explored in living material. S. Almquist]|
