    Isolepis is a cosmopolitan genus of sedge containing around 70 species.[2]Isolepis is found in cool tropical and temperate climates often in Africa and Australasia.[3]

    Isolepis was first described by prolific botanist Robert Brown in 1810.[4] In 1870 a botanist Boeckeler disbanded the genus putting most of the names under a different genus, Scirpus. By the early 20th century Isolepis ceased to exist with other botanists following on from Boeckler’s work.[3] It was not until the late 20th century that Isolepis was reinstated as a distinct genus due to embryological research.
