Paspalum lentiferum Lamarck. Curtis’s Crown Grass. Phen: Jun-Oct. Hab: Pine savannas. Dist: NC south to s. FL, west to e. TX.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Although subtly different morphologically, this taxon appears to warrant species rank. If treated at varietal rank, the varietal epithet is in honor of Rev. Moses Ashley Curtis (of Hillsborough, NC), not Allen Hiram Curtiss (of Jacksonville, FL); the correct spelling of the epithet is therefore ‘curtisianum’.
