Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for pinelands on Big Pine Key. We consider this native but possibly extirpated in the lower Keys. Although this was reported as extant on Big Pine Key in IRC's Rare Plants of South Florida
(Gann et al. 2002: 344-346), there are no recent collections (e.g., FTG, USF) or reports for the Florida Keys.
