South Florida History and Distribution:
Recorded as Presumed Extirpated in Rare Plants of South Florida (Gann et al. 2002
, pp 84-85), based on a single collection from near Immokalee in 1965. Rediscovered in South Florida in October 2002 by Steve Woodmansee at Dupuis Management Area, in the Palm Beach County portion, and also collected in Lee (Wilder & McCombs 2006) and Collier (Wilder & McCollom 2018) counties beginning in November 2002 (e.g. Wilder & McCombs 18629 USF
). Weedy and perhaps more abundant than documented.
