  Cyperaceae Cyperus squarrosus
Photograph taken 1 September.

At first, I thought a Carex. However, it certainly looks like an annual. So it could be Cyperus.

24 Oct 2011: Characters observed while keying this collection: Monocot; Perianth without petal-like parts, bristles absent; Flowers borne concealed within axils of stramineous (chaff-like or husk-like) bracts; Floral bracts 2-ranked, 5-11-veined (observed: 7), tip recurved; Perigynia absent; Ovary unilocular; Styles 3; Seed widest near top.
