Coreopsis floridana E.B. Smith. Florida Coreopsis. 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). 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.

ID notes:Distinguished from C. gladiata by its deltoid outer phyllaries < ¼ as long as inner phyllaries (vs. lanceolate outer phyllaries 1/3-2/3 as long as inner phyllaries in C. gladiata).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Synonymy: = Fl7, GW2, K1, K3, K4, WH3, Smith (1976), Sorrie, LeBlond, & Weakley (2013); < Coreopsis gladiata Walter – FNA21
