Gonolobus suberosus (Linnaeus) R. Brown var. suberosus . Eastern Anglepod. Phen: Apr-Sep; Jul-Nov. Hab: Mesic to wet forests and thickets. Dist: E. MD south to s. peninsular FL, west to s. MS, inland to nw. GA and c. KY; disjunct in c. AR (Saline County).

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Rosatti (1989) and Drapalik (1969) expressed considerable doubt about whether two species should be recognized; their view, supporting the recognition of a single species in our area, is followed here for now. However, studies by Krings & Xiang (2004, 2005) suggested that two entities should be circumscribed at the varietal level. Drapalik (1969) considered the basionym "suberosa" as not applicable to Matelea of North America; Reveal & Barrie (1992) lectotypified the name, resulting in it applying to our material. The epithet "suberosus" has priority over "gonocarpus".
