Nos and P. perligulata grow in perennially wet or “waterlogged” habitats

Nos and P. perligulata grow in perennially wet or “waterlogged” habitats, often with densely-interwoven vegetation. On Ixtaccihuatl, RJS Roc-A web recalls a large population to have occurred over much of the wet floor of the southeastern glacial circ, forming discrete, low mats to about 20 cm in diameter.7.

Hermaphroditic. Perennials; extensively rhizomatous, shoots solitary, green or bluish-grey-green; tillers extravaginal (basally cataphyllous), with lateral and downward tending, cataphyllous shoots. Culms 15?0 cm tall, erect, bases usually geniculate, wiry, leafy, strongly compressed, smooth; nodes strongly compressed, 3? nodes usually exerted. Leaf sheaths distinctly compressed, minutely rough; butt sheaths papery, smooth, glabrous; flag leaf sheaths ca. 2? cm long, margins fused 10?0 the length, subequal to its blade; throats and collars smooth or slightly scabrous, glabrous; ligules 1? mm long, abaxially moderately to densely scabrous, upper margin ciliolate, apices obtuse; blades 1.5? mm wide, flat or folded, abaxially smooth, veins slightly expressed, margins scabrous, adaxially lightly GSK089 clinical trials scabrous over the veins, apices abruptly prow-tipped; cauline blades subequal; sterile shoot blades like those of the culm. Panicles 2?0 cm long, generally 1/6?/3 as broad as long, erect, contracted or slightly open, linear, lanceoloid to ovoid, often interrupted, sparse to congested, with 15 to 80 spikelets; rachis with mostly 1? branches per node; primary branches erect to ascending, or infrequently spreading, fairly strict, 2? angled, angles distinctly scabrous (at least in part); lateral pedicels 1/5?/3 their spikelet in length, scabrous, prickles moderately coarse; longest branches 0.5? cm, with 1?5 spikelets. Spikelets (2.3?3.5? mm long, laterally compressed; not bulbiferous; grayish, often anthocyanic tinged, not lustrous; florets 3?, hermaphroditic; rachilla internodes terete, mostly less than 1 mm long, smooth to muriculate; glumes lanceolate, subequal, distinctly keeled, keels scabrous; apices acute; lower glumes ca. 2 mm long, 3-veined; upper glumes ca. 2.1 mm long, 3-veined; calluses glabrous or more often webbed; web distinct, hairs short, woolly, sparse; lemmas 2.3?.5 mm long, lanceolate, distinctly keeled, keels and marginal veins short villous proximally, between veins smooth, glabrous, intermediate veins obscure, margins narrowly scarious-hyaline, edges smooth orRobert J. Soreng Paul M. Peterson / PhytoKeys 15: 1?04 (2012)with sparsely scaberulous, apices obtuse to acute; paleas densely scabrous over the keels, between keels smooth. Flowers chasmogamous; lodicules ca. 0.6 mm long, lanceolate, with a subequal lateral lobe in the upper 2/3; anthers 1.3?.8 mm long. Caryopses 1.4?.5 mm long, elliptical in side-view, subtrigonous to subcylindrical in cross-section, brown, shallowly sulcate, hilum 0.2 mm long, oval, grain adherent to the palea. 2n = 35, 42, 49, 50, 56. Distribution. This species is circumboreal in distribution and in North America it occurs in Canada, USA, and Mexico (Coahuila). Ecology. This strongly rhizomatous, ruderal species occurs in mesic, cool temperate, semi-shaded to open habitats in seasonally soggy soils, sands to clays, both derived from calcareous and igneous substrates.
