Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for low hammocks and disturbed areas in the lower Keys and lower sandy Keys. Recently observed by Keith A. Bradley on Lower Matecumbe Key. We consider this native from the middle Keys to the lower sandy Keys, but possibly extirpated in the lower Keys and lower sandy Keys.
