Hexastylis virginica (Linnaeus) Small. Virginia Heartleaf. Phen: Apr-Jun. Hab: Upland forests. Dist: A relatively widespread species, occurring throughout NC and VA, extending west into WV, e. KY, and ne. TN (Chester, Wofford, & Kral 1997); alleged to have also been collected in 1897 in Putnam County, FL (ne. FL) (Wunderlin & Hansen 2015).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: H. memmingeri, a taxon close to H. virginica, with the calyx very small (< 1.5 cm long), narrowly cylindro-urceolate, and the calyx lobes very short (ca. 2 mm long) will key here. Gaddy does not recognize it, considering it a small form of H. virginica, but it may warrant taxonomic status. It is known from NC, VA, and WV, in the Piedmont and Mountains.
