Troubled Sedges

Found some unusual sedge perigynia on a walk last Saturday. Looks like a fungal infection; a rust or smut, perhaps? I found some more yesterday (after I did this sketch page). It was drier than the plants I drew, and when I touched the infected perigynia, my fingertips came away smudged with sooty dust.
