Carex normalis A. A. Reznicek

Usually in moist fields, thickets, and open forests; but also sometimes in drier settings. A tall species with relatively few stems in a clump; the perigynia are green at maturity.

Although present (but rare) in the western Upper Peninsula, a September 1888 Farwell collection purported to be from Keweenaw Co. is likely mis-labeled and is not mapped.
