Cyrilla parvifolia Rafinesque. Littleleaf Titi. Phen: May-Jun. Hab: Flatwood pond margins, margins of wetland depressions in sandhills, and along drains through wet pine savannas. Dist: S. GA and se. AL (Pike County) south into Panhandle FL and ne. FL (Gilchrist, Columbia, and Duval counties), disjunct in c. peninsular FL (Lake, Seminole, Orange, and Osceola counties).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: While generally very distinctive (notably in Apalachicola National Forest, FL), apparent intermediates are allegedly seen elsewhere (Thomas 1960; Kurz & Godfrey 1962); herbarium material seems straightforwardly divisible.
