Coreopsis floridana E.B. Smith. Phen: Late Sep-Jan (-Feb). Hab: Mesic to wet pine flatwoods, longleaf pine flatwoods, wet disturbed areas, mixed herbaceous seepage slopes, wet prairies. Dist: FL panhandle south to s. FL (largely absent from ne. FL).
Origin/Endemic status: Endemic
Other Comments: Two vouchers initially labeled as C. floridana in Tift and Grady counties, GA (S. Carr 6248; R. Kral 94508) have both been annotated as C. gladiata by A. Franck and D. Spaulding, respectively (S. Ward, pers. comm.). This species; therefore, appears to be a true Florida endemic, having never been legitimately vouchered from Georgia.
