Gaylussacia nana (A. Gray) Small. Dwarf Dangleberry. Phen: Mar-May; Jun-Aug. Hab: Xeric longleaf pine sandhills, pine flatwoods, pocosin ecotones, pine savannas. Dist: Se. NC (New Hanover County) (Sorrie & LeBlond 2008) and sc. SC (Berkeley and Willamsburg counties) south to n. and c. FL peninsula, FL Panhandle, and west to e. LA (Florida parishes). In NC, this species is somewhat disjunct from ec. SC in xeric sandhills of se. NC (on the Carolina Beach peninsula and the 421 Sandhills nw. of Wilmington). In the central and southern Coastal Plain of South Carolina, it is probably more common than G. frondosa (just not frequently distinguished from it) (P. McMillan, pers.comm. 2020).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: G. nana has a diploid chromosome complement (n=12), compared to tetraploid for G. tomentosa (n=12) (Luteyn et al. 1996). See Sorrie (2017a) for additional details about identification of this species and G. tomentosa.
