FLORIDA KEYS Occurrence: Recorded as Present in Error

Florida Keys History and Distribution: Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. Reported for the Monroe County Keys by the Atlas of Florida Vascular Plants, but we believe this is cited in error for both the Monroe County Keys and for South Florida (Pfeifer, 1966).
