Scleria reticularis Michaux. Netted Nutrush. Phen: Jun-Sep. Hab: Limesink ponds, pondcypress savannas in clay-based Carolina bays. Dist: MA south to FL, west to e. LA, north to IN, MI, and WI. Reports from Mexico are based on S. muehlenbergii.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Other Comments: See notes under S. muehlenbergii. In normal specimens, the achene reticulation ridges are soft-edged and obliquely sloped. Occasional stipitate-capitate fungal growth on the achene has been mistaken for pubescence (a condition perhaps restricted to herbarium specimens), apparently contributing to the unwarranted agglomeration of this distinctive taxon and S. muehlenbergii. There is controversy about typification of the name Scleria reticularis (Camelbeke, Reznicek, & Goetghebeur 2003).
