05/24/2010 Jim E. emailed this information on Dryspike Sedge (Carex foenea): “It IS “an early fruiting species, but not what I thought.  I saw it today on the trail of the USFS’ meadow inholding near here.  Rather short with a tight spike on a single culm.  The genus Carex is extremely difficult to key out (at least for me), with many species here on the Eastern Slope.  A graduate student at CU/Boulder did his doctorate on these critters. You might pass this on to the few others for their take on this very common Carex adapted to dry conditions.”
