Rhynchospora pallida M.A. Curtis. Pale Beaksedge. Phen: Jul-Sep. Hab: Pine savanna-pocosin and sandhill-pocosin ecotones, peaty seepage bogs, usually growing in or near Sphagnum. Dist: Long Island, NY south through NJ to nc. SC, primarily in NJ and NC. See Nelson (1993) for first SC record.

ID notes:Like R. alba and R. macra, it has scales which are at first bright white, "fading" in age to a medium tan or light brown. These three species are thus superficially most distinctive (from other Rhynchospora) in June, July, and August. The bristle characters separate the three species easily.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Synonymy: = C, F, FNA23, G, GW1, K1, K3, K4, NY, RAB, Va, Gale (1944), McMillan (2007); = Rynchospora pallida – S
