The article about ten rare species from genus Carex L. in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Two taxa (Carex capillaris ssp. capillaris and Carex mucronata) are presented as new for flora of this country. The literature and new records in B&H are given for each species. Their distribution is shown on the general maps with UTM 10x10 km grid, which gives an insight into the distribution of these species in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also has a wider phytogeographical significance. The special attention was paid to the conservation categories of species. Five taxa are assessed as threatened, and others mainly have Data Deficient status.
