Author's notes

In snow gum woodland, on slope above wet areas. Third image shows leaf with retrorse marginal prickles separating it from C. appressa and differs from C. tereticaulis which has grey-green rather than yellow-green culms according to PlantNET

Uh-oh. Looks like Carex incomitata, which is not in the list currently. It is quite common in montane woodland, growing in drier areas than most sedges. The culms often lie along the ground or close to it rather than being vertical.

Yes thanks Jackie, for some reason my attempt to suggest Carex incomitata failed to stick.

I've had a go too. Fingers crossed. Things seem to be a little "buggy" following Aaron's revamp of the system.

Hi guys, I don't think this is a bug, but rather a design change to how things used to behave.. I can see Carex incomitata has been registered in the Admin area as a newly suggested species. I.e. http://canberra.naturemapr.org/Admin/SuggestedSpecies - Now a plant moderator or site administrator needs to complete all the required details for adding that species, then move it into the appropriate category for it to take effect and become "live". But at this point, it's sitting there waiting for someone to action this.. Cheers Aaron.

Aaron, I think around 7 or 8 Jan I suggested Carex incomitata as a species we didn't have on the species list for this record, the system seemed to accept it at the time and I awaited a rush&sedge moderator to look at it. But somehow that initial suggestion of mine disappeared, the comments I made in the authors notes were done to explain how I distinguished the suggested species from two similar looking species.
