Key to Tasmanian Dicots
Luzula (Juncaceae) 4b:77
Juncus is a moderately large genus of rushes in Tasmania, represented by 9 native and 3 introduced species. They are typically species of grassy areas and moist subalpine sites.

The species have flowers with small, dry tepals. The flowers occur in inflorescences that are terminal on usually erect, unbranched stems, but with a stem-like bract extending above the inflorescence.

It is closely related to Juncus, but the leaves are conspicuously hairy and each fruit has only one seed.
