Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913. Reported in 1953 for Big Pine Key in the lower Keys (Dickson, 1953). Also observed on North Key Largo, where perhaps relict from the historical pineland there; vouchered there in 2003 (Gann & J.A. Duquesnel 1142, FTG). We consider this native and extant in the upper Keys (Key Largo) and the lower Keys.
