We follow Nesom (2015)
with regard to this use of this name versus Galactia volubilis
as in Wunderlin & Hansen (2011) or Galactia pinetorum
as in Herndon (1981). This is a procumbent (non-twining) Galactia
with herbaceous, broad leaflets, 6–20 mm wide, without raised venation, and relatively large flowers, 10–15 mm long. Due to changing taxonomic concepts, we have modified several reports of this in Miami-Dade County from False to Reported (see below). Previous reassignments of some of these reports to Galactia pinetorum
may have been in error and these reported occurrences are in need of review and documentation.
