Trichophorum Persoon. Deergrass.

Key to Trichophorum

A genus of about 10 species, herbs, primarily circumboreal, but with disjunct occurrence in montane tropical Asia and montane tropical South America. Trichophorum has long been recognized as distinct from Scirpus by many authors (especially in Europe and Asia). Molecular and other studies have clearly confirmed that these species are best separated from Scirpus, and their removal from Scirpus creates a more natural classification (Strong 1994). There remain substantial uncertainties about the circumscription and nomenclature of Trichophorum.
