First collected between 1838 and 1853 by John Loomis Blodgett on Big Pine Key. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for pinelands in the lower Keys. Also observed on North Key Largo, where perhaps relict from the historical pineland there. We consider this native and extant in the upper Keys and lower Keys.
