Scirpus paludosus of Michigan Flora.
A western and maritime halophyte, known in Michigan from a single collection from ditches at Midland (R. R. Dreisbach 618 in 1914, MICH), but occurring sporadically in salted roadsides and other disturbed salt-influenced areas in the Great Lakes region, and may well be found elsewhere in Michigan.
A more slender plant than B. fluviatilis, with more congested inflorescences and paler brown scales.
