–  How about Cyperus michelianus subsp. pygmaeus (Rottb.) Asch. & Graebn. (syn: Cyperus pygmaeus Rottb.)


– It is Juncellus pygmaeus
    rest is synonyms


– I think this should satisfy you http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-237531

    Kew Plant List is published very recently in 2010 and whole World will follow it as standard database for resolved taxa. I find no reason why we should not follow it


– Again I agree here with …
The plant here is Cyperus michelianus subsp. pygmaeus (Rottb.) Asch. & Graebn. as stated by him.
For your information, in present date, genus Juncellus has been merged back into Cyperus and is considered as one of the subgenus.
