Juncus trigonocarpus Steudel. Redpod Rush. Phen: Jul-Oct. Hab: Seepage slopes, bogs, along stream margins, ditches in acid, sandy landscapes. Dist: Coastal Plain, NC to FL Panhandle, west to e. TX.

ID notes: Young J. trigonocarpus and J. canadensis are often confused; once mature, however, the two can usually be separated by capsule color alone. Although J. canadensis capsules redden, they never approach the dark reddish-purple tone of J. trigonocarpus. Seed and capsule size are also distinct for the two taxa.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Syn: = ETx1, FNA22, GW1, K1, K3, K4, RAB, S, Tx, WH3, Kirschner (2002b)
