Reported in 1907 by C.F. Millspaugh for the lower sandy Keys. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for coastal sand dunes and hammocks throughout the Florida Keys. We consider this native and extant from the upper Keys to the lower Keys and reported for the lower sandy Keys. Plants of Sporobolus virginicus
and Paspalum vaginatum
are frequently misidentified as this.
