Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1884 by J. Cosmo Melvill for the island of Key West. Reported in 1907 by C.F. Millspaugh for the lower sandy Keys. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for coastal sand dunes throughout the Florida Keys. We consider this native throughout the Florida Keys, but perhaps extirpated in the upper Keys.
