Author's notes

This plant put up a hell of a fight, but I eventually convinced myself it was Lepidosperma filiforme and not Tetraria capillaris. Both species are described as being tufted, which I interpreted to mean a tussock, as in the 1st photo. Both have a 3-fid style & 3 anthers (3rd photo), but Tetraria has a conical style base which remains attached to the top of the nut while Lepidosperma have hypogynous scales attached to the base of the nut. My thing had the latter, but the not yet fully formed nut was too small to photograph.
