🌱"Field Manual of Michigan Flora - 2012"
🌱"Sedges and Rushes of Minnesota - 2018"
🌱"Sedges of Maine - 2013"
🌱GO BOTANY online (NE USA flora) - https://gobotany.nativeplanttrust.org/dkey/
🌱https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/ great images of key ID features of graminoids, etc. and descrips of similar species
🌱line drawings - "Illustrated Companion to Gleason and Cronquist's Manual"
🌱"Macroscopic identification key of 36 Sphagnum species in eastern Canada" open access https://geoscan.nrcan.gc.ca/starweb/geoscan/servlet.starweb?path=geoscan/downloade.web&search1=R=209147

🍁 Other resources that may be helpful:
🌱woody plants and sedges - https://northernforestatlas.org/category/products/photographic-guides/
🌱RANGE MAPS (based on herbarium records)

USA - state and county breakdown http://bonap.org/ OR Google search "Bonap" and "Genus for species of interest"... you'll get maps for each species within the genus (e.g., Sparganium http://bonap.net/Napa/TaxonMaps/Genus/County/Sparganium)

CANADA - provincial / territory only which isn't very helpful (https://data.canadensys.net/vascan/search) but you can search for mapped herbarium records to give you a better idea of a species distribution (https://data.canadensys.net/explorer/occurrences/search?lang=en&q=#tab_mapView)
