Aletris lutea Small. Yellow Colic-root. Phen: Mar-May. Hab: Wet pine savannas. Dist: E. GA (in immediate proximity to the SC border) south to s. FL, and west to e. LA (Weigant 2002); disjunct in w. LA (Sorrie & LeBlond 2008) and recently verified in se. NC (R. Thornhill, pers. comm. 2012) (another specimen collected in se. NC has recently been annotated as A. lutea, but it appears to be A. farinosa). The report by Fernald (1950) of A. lutea Small as far north as se. VA is probably in error.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: The hybrid of A. lutea with A. obovata is relatively frequent in the area of parental geographic overlap; it is intermediate, including in flower color, which is a creamy pale yellow.

Synonymy: = FNA26, GW1, K1, K3, K4, S, WH3, Ward (1978), Weigant (2002), Zomlefer (1997b); = n/a – RAB
