The distribution of twenty taxa of Carex (Cyperaceae) in West Virginia is described, with miscellaneous notes on habitat and taxonomic status. Six species are additions to the West Virginia flora: Carex deflexa, C. interior, C. lucorum var. austrolucorum, C. novaeangliae, C. rugosperma, and C. woodii. Previous reports of Carex interior and C. lucorum from West Virginia were based upon misidentifications. Two taxa are deleted from the West Virginia flora: Carex alopecoidea and C. atlantica ssp. capillacea. The twelve other taxa discussed are Carex aestivalis, C. albicans var. albicans, C. annectens var. xanthocarpa, C. atlantica ssp. atlantica, C. buxbaumii, C. echinata ssp. echinata, C. grayi, C. lacustris, C. nigromarginata, C. normalis, C. pellita, and C. umbellata.
