This photo of a typically unimpressive rarity with an unpronounceable systematic name was taken on a very windy day hence the blurring. It looks just like a sedge but isn't one. Hence the name False Sedge. It grows mostly in mountainous flushes in Perthshire but here in Teesdale there is an isolated community.

There no records of K. simpliciuscula from Wales or Ireland.
