And the winner is...

Justin, with his quick call of Juncus stygius. Not that he was aided by past conversations...

This tiny boreal rush is known from a few locations in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where it occurs on floating poor fen ("bog") mats and in flarks within large patterned peatland complexes.

What the flark are you talking about?

I actually had forgotten that you mentioned this species to me until I arrived at an identification, at which point I thought "Didn't Brad mention this species a while back". This recollection did seal the deal post priori.

Further, I was under great pressure to beat Scott to the punch.

Lastly, that is now my favorite Juncus. What a beauty! A trip to the UP is in order.

You know, I figured this plant would eventually trigger your memory that I mentioned this species when we talked...but, I figured you wouldn't immediately remember that or jump to that conclusion, so it was a safe play. Nice work!
