Penthorum... dissectum?

Have a look at the plant in the photograph below. It appears to be Penthorum sedoides with highly dissected leaves. I couldn't find any named forms of P. sedoides with dissected leaves, so it must just be an abnormal individual. For more information on P. sedoides, click here.

This photograph was taken in a mitigation wetland in Lake County, Indiana. Has anyone seen anything like this?

Nope. Sure doesn't look like any of our specimens of that species. Or as my Grandfather used to say, "Hit tain't kwite right".
