I Concerning this particular collection (#2629)
i the following was written by C. C. Deam, Flora
of Indiana, page 211. (I9k0)r
Scleria setacea Poir. (Scleria reticularis
var. pubescens Britt.) Map U15. There is a
| specimen in the herbarium of the University
| of Wisconsin collected by Unibach in 1908 near
; Dune Park, Porter County, which I am referring
| to this species. This specimen has the pubescent
achenes and the long filiform peduncles of the
| lateral spikelets but the lobes of the
I hypogynium are not acute or only scarcely so;
; Witmer Stone, in his "Flora of Southern New
j Jersey,” on page 281* says: "The width of the
| leaves and pubescence of the schenes are
i characters which are very variable." The size
j of the achenes of our plants is about the same
| as those of S. reticularis. While the achenes
I of typical ST reilcularis are glabrous, some-
| times an achene is found which has a trace of
j pubescence which is a character of S. setacea,.
