Not reported for the Florida Keys by John Kunkel Small in 1913, but reported for low pinelands and hammocks in the Everglades Keys and Florida Keys by Small in 1933. First collected in the lower sandy Keys in 1996 by George D. Gann and Keith A. Bradley (468, FTG). We consider this native and extant in the upper Keys, lower Keys and lower sandy Keys.
