Manilkara jaimiqui (C. Wright ex Grisebach) Dubard ssp. emarginata (Linnaeus) Cronquist. Wild Dilly. Hab: Rockland hammocks, pine rocklands, coastal berms, shell mounds. Dist: S. Florida (Miami-Dade, Monroe, Collier counties); Bahamas.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Taxonomy Comments: As usually interpreted since Cronquist (1945), M. jaimiqui consists of four subspecies variously distributed in the West Indies. The complex is in need of a modern reappraisal, and our taxon may well warrant specific rank, in which case the name is M. emarginata s.s. (see synonymy).

Synonymy: = Fl5, FNA8, K3, K4, WH3, WI, Cronquist (1945a), Govaerts, Frodin, & Pennington (2001); = Manilkara bahamensis (Baker) H.J.Lam & A.Meeuse – Bah; = Manilkara emarginata L.; = Mimusops emarginata (L.) Britton – S
