Archer’s Carex is a loosely-tufted herb that grows from long, slender underground stems in damp, alpine herb fields.
In NSW it is only known in Kosciuszko National Park and the upper Thredbo River area. It is also found in the high country of Victoria and Tasmania.
- Grazing and trampling by feral horses.
- Permanent seepage areas may become degraded, allowing the colonisation of species typical of drier vegetation, thus driving out Archers Carex.
