Carex disticha is a Eurasian species of sedge known as the brown sedge or, in North America, two-ranked sedge.


Carex disticha is native to parts of Northern and Western Europe, where it grows in moist spots in a number of habitat types, and it has been introduced to the Great Lakes region of southern Canada.[1] In its native range, this species is often associated with the Juncus subnodulosusCirsium palustre fen-meadow habitat.[2] Carex disticha has also been introduced to Canada, where it is known from only two sites, in Ontario and Quebec.[1][3]
