Rhynchospora recognita (Gale) Kral. Cymose Beaksedge. Phen: Jun-Sep. Hab: Wet to dry low grounds, diabase glades, ditches, powerline corridors, pine savannas, moist seepage on rock outcrops, other saturated areas. Dist: NJ south to FL, west to TX, north in the interior to nc. TN and around the Great Lakes; CA; West Indies; Central America.

ID notes: Rhynchospora recognita has been split off from R. globularis, differing in its taller stems (routinely growing to a meter or taller), longer seeds (1.4-1.8 mm vs. 1.3-1.5 mm), and wider leaves (up to 5 mm vs. up to 3 mm in R. globularis).

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: As explained by Kral (1999), this taxon warrants specific status. There is uncertainty regarding the application of the name R. cymosa; for now, we retain the more recently and widely used R. recognita.
