Description:

Plant about 20 cm high. Area mowed regularly so plants may be a bit stunted. Description on E. spicatus and E. incanus very similar (apart from incanus with hairs on base of filaments tufted). Is there an easier way to ID them? I'll go for incanus as habitat is given as clay flats. E. incanus listed as Vulnerable, E. spicatus as Endangered.
