Carex songorica and C. gotoi have similar appearance, but different distributions that almost do not overlap. Some authors considered C. gotoi as a subspecies of C. songorica. This opinion was based on the premise that C. gotoi differs from C. songorica only by slightly narrower utricles with thickened costate veins and somewhat longer beak. In order to clarify the extent of differences between these two taxa, we performed a molecular genetic study based on specimens from Asian Russia. We also re-examined herbarium specimens in order to clarify the correctness of identification and the differences between C. songorica and C. gotoi. Our results suggest that these taxa can be considered distinct species.
