We follow Nesom (2015)
with regard to segregating this from Galactia regularis
or Galactia volubilis
(depending on treatment), but follow the Flora of the West Indies and ITIS in placing Galactia grisebachii
into synonymy under Galactia parvifolia
sensu lato. This is the twining Galactia
with leaflets linear-oblong to narrowly oblong or
narrowly elliptic, 2–4(–6) mm wide mostly in the Florida Keys and the interior of Miami-Dade County.
Synonyms: Galactia grisebachii; Galactia volubilis

of Wunderlin & Hansen 2011, in part, not (L.) Britton, Sterns, & Poggenb.
