This is native to the Florida Keys in both Miami-Dade and Monroe counties. One specimen was collected in 1965 on an island off of Flamingo in Florida Bay in Everglades National Park. This record is treated as being from the Monroe County Mainland by the Altlas of Florida Vascular Plants, which we follow here. A juvenile individual was also discovered in 2011 on Cape Sable in Everglades National Park by Marc Minno, ENP botanist Jimi Sadle and others. There are no other records from the South Florida mainland or from offshore barrier islands.
