Initial Editorial Comments treated as Scirpus maritimus in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; despite Smith and Yatskievych, 1996 (Notes on the genus Scirpus sensu lato in Missouri. Rhodora 98:168-179; in which Bolb. marit. subsp. paludosus recognized but Bolb. marit. not addressed), evidently retained as Scirpus maritimus by Galen Smith, one of three The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] contributors of Scirpus, in Smith, 1995 (New combinations in North American Schoenoplectus, Bulboschoenus, Isolepis, and Trichophorum. Novon 5:97-102), "Bolboschoenus glaucus is widely confused with Scirpus maritimus L. (Schoenoplectus maritimus (L.) Lye, Bolboschoenus maritimus (L.) Palla)", p. 101; genus spelled "Bolboschoenus", despite Preston citation.
