Carex pedunculata Muhlenberg ex Willdenow. Section: [26ccc] Section 40 Clandestinae. Longstalk Sedge. Phen: Apr-May. Hab: Nutrient-rich dry to mesic forests, usually over calcareous or mafic rocks. Dist: NL (Newfoundland), SK, and ND, south to NJ, w. VA, sw. NC (Gaddy et al. 1984), nw. SC (Gaddy et al. 1984), nw. GA (Dade County) (Jones & Coile 1988), n. AL, c. IN, c. IL, and n. IA.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: Carex erythrobasis Léveillé & Vaniot, of Korea, Manchuria, and far eastern Russia, is sometimes treated as distinct from Carex pedunculata at only variety or subspecies rank (see synonymy); species rank separation (followed here) seems more likely to be appropriate for these far disjunct taxa.

Synonymy: = C, F, G, Il, K1, K3, K4, Mi, Pa, Tat, Tn, W, Mackenzie (1931-1935); = Carex pedunculata Muhl. ex Willd. ssp. pedunculata – NE, NY; = Carex pedunculata Muhl. ex Willd. var. pedunculata – FNA23, Va; = Carex pendunculata – GrPl, misspelling; = n/a – RAB
