Xyris fimbriata Elliott. Fringed Yellow-eyed-grass. Phen: Sep-Oct. Hab: In mucky or sandy soils of upland depression ponds, also along sandhill streams, impoundments and in deep muck of sandhills seepage slopes often just below the zone occupied by Xyris chapmanii. Dist: Se. VA south to c. peninsular FL, west (interruptedly) to se. TX; disjunct in s. NJ, DE, and c. TN.

ID notes: Generally easily recognized by its large stature, scabrous scapes, and "fuzzy" appearance of the lateral sepals. Where this species narrowly co-occurs with X. panacea in Wakulla County, FL, it can be distinguished by its shorter, wider spikes and more exserted fimbriate sepals.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
