Taxonomy Comments: The epithet 'lupinellus' is a noun in apposition and is therefore not declined according to the genus's gender; 'lupinellus' is the correct epithet and spelling in any genus.

Other Comments: The very peculiar leaves, palmately 5-7-foliolate with "oblinear" leaflets, make the species unmistakable. First reported for SC by McMillan et al. (2002).
