Carex tincta Sedge. Key Characteristics. Loosely clumped Ovales sedge, closely resembling C. Bebbii; leaves 2-4 mm; inflorescence with strongly clustered, overlapping spikes; perigynia strongly flattened with prominent wings, relatively narrow (. Mackenzie (1931–1935, parts 2–3, pp. Hermann (1970) reported Carex tincta from Alberta, Canada. Those specimens are apparently congested inflorescence forms of C. Hermann also reported C. Tinta from Montana and Washington, but the specimens also appear to be misidentifications. Tincta gerens rubro Punica rostra croco. Non fuit in terris vocum simulantior ales— reddebas blaeso tam bene verba sono! Raptus es invidia—non tu fera bella movebas; garrulus et placidae pacis amator eras. Ecce, coturnices inter sua proelia vivunt; forsitan et fiunt inde frequenter anus. Plenus eras minimo, nec prae sermonis amore.

Information is summarized from MNFI's database of rare species and community occurrences. Data may not reflect true distribution since much of the state has not been thoroughly surveyed.
Known from a somewhat disturbed sandy field within a flat open sandplain near the Menominee River.
For each species, lists of natural communities were derived from review of the nearly 6,500 element occurrences in the MNFI database, in addition to herbarium label data for some taxa. In most cases, at least one specimen record exists for each listed natural community. For certain taxa, especially poorly collected or extirpated species of prairie and savanna habitats, natural community lists were derived from inferences from collection sites and habitat preferences in immediately adjacent states (particularly Indiana and Illinois). Natural communities are not listed for those species documented only from altered or ruderal habitats in Michigan, especially for taxa that occur in a variety of habitats outside of the state.
Natural communities are not listed in order of frequency of occurrence, but are rather derived from the full set of natural communities, organized by Ecological Group. In many cases, the general habitat descriptions should provide greater clarity and direction to the surveyor. In future versions of the Rare Species Explorer, we hope to incorporate natural community fidelity ranks for each taxon.
Bluegrasses (Poa compressa and Poa pratensis).
Recently discovered in Michigan and known from a single locality. The primary need at present is a status survey and the conservation of the only known locality.
Random meander search covers areas that appear likely to have rare taxa, based on habitat and the judgement of the investigator.
Survey Period: From first week of July to fourth week of July
