Florida Keys History and Distribution:
Reported in 1884 by J. Cosmo Melvill for the island of Key West. Reported in 1913
by John Kunkel Small for hammocks and sandy places from the upper Keys to the lower Keys. We consider this native from the upper Keys to the lower Keys, but perhaps extirpated in the upper Keys.
