Scleria flaccida Steudel. Flaccid Nutrush. Phen: May-Sep. Hab: Coastal hammocks, maritime forests, oak woods and thickets near saltwater, blackwater swamps. Dist: Scattered along the outer Coastal Plain from se. VA to s. FL and west to LA.

ID notes:The often pendulous and capillary lateral peduncles suggest S. oligantha, another swamp species. S. oligantha is most readily separated by its 8-9-lobed hypogynium with minute rounded papillae.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: This is a poorly known species, with more locations likely to be found upon re-examination of S. triglomerata and S. nitida specimens.

Synonymy: = F; < Scleria nitida Willd. – G; < Scleria triglomerata Michx. – C, FNA23, GW1, K1, K3, K4, RAB, S, WH3
