Florida Keys History and Distribution: Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. Lyman D. Benson and others reportedly collected a specimen from Big Pine Key in the lower Florida Keys (16575, POM). We have not seen this specimen. Austin (1984) believed that this species did not occur in South Florida. This is probably a misidentification of H. simpsonii.
