Trichophorum planfolium has many synonyms and is currently unknown in Arkansas. It is likely in northern Arkansas based on its distribution in Yatskievych (1999). Synonyms include Isolepis planfolia Spreng., Scirpus planfolius Muhl. var. planifolius but not the other variety, and Scirpus verecundus Fern.
