Rhynchospora solitaria R.M. Harper. Hab: Wet, sandy/peaty depressions. Dist: Known from a few sites in the Gulf Coastal Plain of GA (Colquitt, Irwin, Tift, and Turner counties) (Sorrie 1998b) and SC (Berkeley County) (McMillan & Porcher 2005).
ID notes: Rhynchospora solitaria resembles a delicate R. ciliaris; its distinctiveness is well described in Bridges & Orzell (1992). It should be sought in seepage bogs in the Fall-line Sandhills of the Carolinas and in wet pine savannas of the outer Coastal Plain.
