South Florida History and Distribution:
Not reported in Rare Plants of South Florida (Gann et al. 2002
). This species was newly described in 2002 (DeLaney & Wunderlin 2002). A single South Florida collection from Glades County (Brass 15656
) was historically determined as Chrysopis floridana
, a species to the north of our area, and later Chrysopsis scabrella
, which was ranked as rare in the FISF in 2002. No new records are known, but we rank as possibly extirpated as there are observations just over the border in Highlands County and this could be present on private land between Palmdale and the Highlands County line.
