Description: 
The long tough Juncus, Bobartia spathoclea, which is probably used to thatch the houses. Seems admirably adapted for all kinds of mat and basket work, and seems to do well on relatively dry coast hills. Fire has destroyed much of the taller vegetation. [Shantz travel journal, Aug. 18, 1919]
