Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1884 by J. Cosmo Melvill for the island of Key West. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for shores and sand dunes from the upper Keys to the lower Keys. First observed in the lower sandy Keys in 1996 by George Gann and Keith Bradley in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge. We consider this native and extant throughout the Florida Keys.
