Forming a dense mat on sandy substrate under two feet of water in Nimisila Reservoir. Michigan Flora and A Manual of Aquatic Plants led me here based on the spongy, pale green culms lacking reddish basal sheaths. But, there have never been any records of this species in Ohio. If the plants were dark green, without spongy texture and with reddish sheaths, this would be the much more common E. acicularis.

Based on distribution, I do suspect the latter. Does anyone know these species well?

Description from Wikipedia

Eleocharis is a genus of 250 or more species of flowering plants in the sedge family, Cyperaceae. The name is derived from the Greek words ἕλειος (heleios), meaning "marsh dweller," and χάρις (charis), meaning "grace." Members of the genus are known commonly as spikerushes, although spikesedges is a more technically appropriate name and most scientists who study them in earnest refer to them as such. The genus has a geographically cosmopolitan distribution, with centers of diversity...
