||Carex arenaria L.
||Stearn (in Biol. J. Linn. Soc. 5: 10. 1973), in an account of Linnaeus' Öland and Gotland journey of 1741, treated Grankull in Öland as the restricted type locality, and noted the existence of 1100.9 (LINN). In his paper, he attributed restricted type localities irrespective of whether any material existed in LINN and, where specimens do exist, he does not refer to any of them as type specimens. This LINN material, formally designated as lectotype by Egorova, is annotated as having come from Skåne, rather than Öland.
