Family:Xyridaceae
Scientific Name:Abolboda grandis Griseb.
Discussion:

A. grandis is an exceedingly variable species, the three recognized minor variants being populations that are largely the expression of size and vigor from which one variety passes into another. Geographical and ecological arrangement, with the obviously implied genetic considerations, lend persuasion that at least three infraspecific populations be given taxonomic place.
