Andropogon dealbatus (C. Mohr) Weakley & LeBlond. Phen: Aug-Dec (-Jul). Hab: Wet pine savannas, ditches adjacent to those savannas, depressional wetlands. Dist: S. NJ south to s. FL and west to e. TX; also in the Bahamas (Sorrie & LeBlond 1997).
Origin/Endemic status: Native
Taxonomy Comments: Campbell (1983) informally described two "variants" of A. virginicus var. glaucus. A. capillipes is clearly a species distinct from A. virginicus; moreover, the substantial morphological and ecological differences between Campbell's two "variants" (which he describes as nearly always sharply distinct, even when growing in close proximity) warrant recognition as good species (Weakley et al. 2011).
