  • APC Comment: R.Brown, Prodr. 224 (1810), indicates but does not validly make the combination Eleocharis acicularis. A.D.Chapman, Austral. Pl. Name Index 2607 (1991) stated that Poiret did not validly make the combination Scirpus pusillus. However, under Article 33.1 of the 2006 (Vienna) edition of the ICBN, this name is considered to be validly published.
