Florida Keys History and Distribution: Only one collection is known - from the herbarium of Alvan W. Chapman. The specimen (s.n., NY) is labeled as collected in 1843 from the island of Key West, but it is not certain if Chapman was the actual collector. Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. For more information, see IRC's species account.
