    3 Calyx 7-8.5 mm long, the upper lobe 1.8-3.5 mm long; cyme 3-7-flowered; unicellular hairs of the lower leaf surface thick-walled, terete to conical, unchanged in drying; [nw. Putnam County, FL]
  2 Leaves either linear and strongly revolute such that essentially only the midvein is visible on the undersurface or linear to narrowly oblanceolate, slightly to strongly revolute, some leaf surface sometimes showing on the leaf undersurface, but lacking raised lateral veins; [collectively more widespread].
      4 Leaves green or gray-pubescent above; midrib on lower leaf surface glabrous or glabrate, contrasting with the more densely pubescent lower leaf surface.
        5 Leaves glabrous above; calyx tube glabrous or minutely and inconspicuously pubescent; leaves 10-20 mm long, 2-3 mm wide; [FL Panhandle and s. AL]
        5 Leaves densely gray-pubescent above; calyx tube densely short-pubescent; leaves 7-10 mm long, 1.2 mm wide; [FL peninsula, mainly along the east coast]
      4 Leaves densely gray-pubescent above and below; midrib on lower leaf surface densely gray-pubescent to gray-pilose.
          6 Leaves 6-10 (-13) mm long; mericarps 1.0-1.2 mm long at maturity; [central peninsular FL]
