Florida Keys History and Distribution:
First collected between 1838 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on the island of Key West and at "Rock Key" - presumably Boca Grande in the lower sandy Keys. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for hammocks throughout the Florida Keys. The so-called hairy blolly, Guapira floridana Small, is still extant in the lower Keys and lower sandy Keys. We consider this native and extant throughout the Florida Keys.
