Monographs Details: Everardia montana subsp. guaiquinimae (Schnee) T.Koyama & Maguire
Authority: Maguire, Bassett. 1965. The Botany of the Guayana Highland. Mem. New York Bot. Gard. 12 (3): 1-285.
Family:Cyperaceae
Discussion:Everardia guaiquinimae Schnee, Bull. Soc. Venezolana Sci. Nat. 9: 83. 1944. The border between subsp. guaiquinimae and subsp. glaucifolia is obscured by the two intermediate specimens, Maguire 32791 and Maguire 33051, both from the Cerro Guaiquinima. In no. 32791 the leaves are rigid and short with very blunt apex like those of subsp. guaiquinimae, but the surfaces of blades are glaucous and glabrous as in subsp. glaucifolia. In 33051 the leaves are pubescent as in subsp. guaiquinimae but are also elongate, erect and not very rigid like those of subsp. glaucifolia. They are here referred to subsp. glaucifolia and subsp. guaiquinimae, respectively, because of the feature of the leaf surfaces.
