Carex corrugata Fernald
Map incomplete at this time, due to the lumping of Carex amphibola, C. corrugata, C. grisea, and C. planispicata in older Virginia studies and Atlas Ed. III. See also the map of these four species combined (Carex amphibola complex). Distribution contributed by R.F.C. Naczi, 2005, plus more recent collections.
Mesic, often rich forests of bottomlands and lower slopes; most numerous in well-drained floodplain forests but also on hummocks of alluvial swamps. This species has generally been lumped with Carex amphibola and C. grisea in Virginia studies, and its distribution is incompletely mapped. Based on field and herbarium experience, it is locally common in bottomlands of the inner s. Coastal Plain and outer s. Piedmont south of the James River, with scattered occurrences elsewhere.
