Another interesting fact about this plant is its circumboreal distribution; meaning it can be found all around the globe in the northern hemisphere. Some taxonomists split the species into two varieties based on geographic range alone, while others keep it as one species throughout its range. Here in North America, our variety is called S. palustris var. americana. Pod grass is a monotypic taxon and the only species/member of its genus (Scheuchzeria) and family (Scheuchzeriaceae).
