Xyris isoetifolia, locally abundant only in northwest Florida, is most often mistaken for X. baldwiniana but is distinguishable by its bearded staminodes and more distinctly ribbed, shorter seeds.

Xyris isoetifolia

provided by wikipedia EN

Xyris isoetifolia, the quillwort yelloweyed grass,[1] is a plant species native to southern Alabama and to the Florida panhandle,[2] where it is found in coastal plains, Sphagnum bogs, and the edges of sinkholes.[3][4]

Xyris isoetifolia is a perennial herb up to 40 cm (16 inches) tall. Leaves are rather narrow, twisted, rarely more than 1 mm in width but up to 15 cm (6 inches) long, thus superficially resembling those of Isoetes.[3][5][6]
