The exact identification of these species is still unknown, but tentatively assumed to belong into this group.

This content is currently mostly a merge of [RK] and [GMBOT]. The latter divided the species into two sections Vigneae [Beauv.] Koch and Eucarex Griseb. I have used the subgenus division ( Vignea , Carex and Psyllophora ) of the former source, assuming all Vigneae go into subgenus Vignea . All Eucarex , which didn't have any matching taxons already, have gone into Carex , but some of them actually may need to go to some other subgenus, such as Psyllophora ? -- msa
