Florida Keys History and Distribution:
First collected between 1938 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on the island of Key West. Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913, but collected by him that year on the island of Key West. Also collected by Small on Big Pine Key in 1921. We consider this native and extant in the middle and lower Keys. For more information on C. squarrosus in South Florida, see IRC's species account
