Florida Keys History and Distribution:
First collected between 1838 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on Big Pine Key. Reported in 1931 by John Kunkel Small for pinelands and rarely hammocks in the Florida Keys without specific locality data. Also reported for North Key Largo, near the relict pineland, by Karen Achor in 1977. We consider this native and extant in the lower Keys.
