Florida Keys History and Distribution: First collected between 1838 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on the island of Key West. Reported in 1913 by John Kunkel Small for pinelands in the lower Keys. Also collected in 1999 and 2002 by George Gann and Janice Duquesnel at Dagny Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park on North Key Largo (231 FTG, 1140 FTG), where perhaps relict from the historical pineland there. However, the North Key Largo population was not observed during comprehensive botanical surveys between 2012 and 2014 (Wilder et a. 2014). We consider this native in the upper Keys and lower Keys, but possibly extirpated in the upper Keys. Verification of its status in pinelands in the lower Keys is also needed.
