Chorizandra (Cyperaceae) 4b:137
Tasmania has two species of Chorizandra (both native). One, C. australis, is an aquatic growing in still or slow-flowing water. The other is an uncommon species from wet heath in northern Tasmania. The plant usually has a few cylindrical, stem-like leaves and a flowering stem ending in a more-or-less spherical head (but with a stem-like bract extending above it). The fruit is dry, about 2-4 mm long with obvious ribs.
