Carex nodiflora

Agusan present, Alabat present, Asia-Tropical: Philippines (Philippines present), Luzon present, Mindanao present
Malesia: Philippines (Luzon; according to Merrill, l.c., also in Alabat and Mindanao: Agusan).


According to Nelmes (1951: 262) in this species it is the style-base which is discoid-annulate, not the apex of the nut. I do not see any difference with the nut and style-base of the allied species.
