Range Description

Carex lachenalii is a bipolar boreal species, which occurs in the temperate and subartic Northern Hemisphere and in New Zealand. Its distribution is much wider in the Northern hemisphere where it is likely to have originated (Heide 2002). The taxon has been reported in Europe, Siberia, the far East of Russia, Middle and eastern Asia, China, Mongolia, Northern America and New Zealand. Reports of C. lachenalii in the mountains of Spain, Portugal, and Himalayas may be misidentifications of C. furva and C. co-optanda (Flora of North America North Mexico 2002, Monocot Checklist 2007).
