Gaylussacia orocola (Small) Camp. Blue Ridge Bog Huckleberry. Hab: Bogs, seepages over granite. Dist: Endemic to the sw. NC mountains.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: The montane plants named Lasiococcus orocola by Small are probably most closely allied to northern G. bigeloviana, and occur with other notable northern disjuncts, such as Myrica gale and Chamaedaphne calyculata (often associated with var. G. bigeloviana in northern peat bogs); they differ in several respects, however, and are here given taxonomic standing (Sorrie & Weakley 2007a).

Synonymy: = FNA8, K3, K4, Camp (1935), Gajdeczka et al (2010), Sleumer (1967a), Sorrie & Weakley (2007a); = Lasiococcus orocola (Small) Small – S; < Gaylussacia dumosa (Andrews) A.Gray – GW2, K1, RAB, W, Godfrey (1988), Luteyn et al (1996)
