Description

Growing on edge of wetland and throughout degraded stream systems. Maybe young plants but leaves not hugely wide. I have not figured out C. lessoniana and C. geminata yet. These specimens consistently had short compact female spikes on long peduncles. Raspy peduncle with small short bracts. Nuts almost green/brown widest in the centre. Glume scale red/purple/brown with a light green centre with a long pointed awn.
