Chrysopsis trichophylla (Nuttall) Elliott. Hab: Longleaf pine sandhills, sandy roadsides, coastal dunes.
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Other Comments: The taxon treated by many authors as C. trichophylla was reduced to a form by Semple (1981), as C. gossypina ssp. gossypina f. trichophylla (Nuttall) Semple. He suggests, though, that varietal status may be warranted. Plants in SC previously identified as C. cruiseana are referable to C. trichophylla. 2n chromosome number=18.
