Abstract

The information for this paper was obtained from specimens collected by Professor Bohumel Shimek and stored, unidentified except for about 300 specimens, in the herbarium of the State University of Iowa, Iowa City. In the approximately 300 previously identified species just mentioned (the person responsible for their identification is unknown) there were more erroneously than correctly identified plants. A large number of these specimens belonged to the Ovales section and had been identified as Carex festucacea. It was found that there was one Carex festucacea and all the rest were either C. brevior, C. Bicknellii or C. molesta. These plants were collected from practically all parts of the state over the period of years from 1896 to 1936. This collection does not represent all of the Shimek collection of Cyperaceae, there were many others which have been previously identified and reported.
