Eleocharis engelmannii
Previously included in the E. ovata complex (E. ovata var. detonsa). This species is possibly more common than the map would indicate. Due to its morphological similarity to the common E. obtusa (also formerly included in the E. ovata complex), E. engelmannii might be under-reported.
