Andropogon elliottii Chapman. Elliott’s Bluestem. Phen: Jul-Nov. Hab: Dry to moist forests, woodlands, longleaf pine sandhills, pine savannas, fields, and disturbed areas. Dist: S. NJ west to s. IN, s. IL, s. MO, south to s. FL and TX.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Campbell (1983) argued that the name A. elliottii should be replaced by A. gyrans; Ward (2004c) argued for retention of the traditional A. elliottii. We find that Campbell's (1983) rejection of A. elliottii was flawed (Budach & Bridges 2024 in press).
