#868 They called me Carex montana, also known as Carex witheringii, Carex czetzii, Carex montana subsp. czetzii, Carex praecox f. petermannii, Carex krullii, and Carex forbesii. I pay homage to the male botanists William Withering, Czetz (I couldn’t find his records), Petermann (I couldn’t find his records), Krull (I couldn’t find his records), and Charles Noyes Forbes, Edward Forbes, or Henry Ogg Forbes. They first catalogued me in 1753.
