Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for hammocks from the upper Key to the lower Keys, but under his definition the upper Keys would have extended south and west to West Summerland Key. We consider this native and extant in the lower Keys. Also, it is more closely associated with pinelands than with hammocks.
