Carex peckii A. A. Reznicek

Usually in beech-maple-hemlock forests, but also in ± open sandy or rocky forests and cedar swamps.

Sometimes Carex peckii can be rather loosely cespitose, and clumps pulled apart and pressed may appear to have elongated rhizomes like C. pensylvanica and its allies. However, C. peckii has a much shorter staminate spike, usually 5–9 mm long, and shorter anthers, ca. 1.4–2.1 mm long. Carex pensylvanica and its allies have staminate spikes ca. 8–25 mm long and anthers ca. (1.8–) 2–4 mm long.
