Mayaca aubletii Michaux. Phen: (Dec-) May-Aug. Hab: Marshes, streams, swamp forests, shores of natural lakes (rarely in artificial impoundments), seepage areas, in saturated soil and usually associated with seepage. Dist: Se. NC south to c. peninsular FL, west to e. TX; West Indies (w. Cuba).
Origin/Endemic status: Native
Other Comments: The two species previously recognized have recently been usually interpreted as only different growth forms, induced by different hydrologic conditions; Urquiola (2001) disagrees and supports their recognition. The two taxa are provisionally adopted here; additional study is warranted.
