Lobelia floridana Chapman. Hab: Wet pine savannas and flatwoods, depression ponds. Dist: S. GA (Jones & Coile 1988) and Panhandle FL west to LA; disjunct in se. NC (historically). McVaugh (1936) reports this species for Wilmington, New Hanover County, NC, based on a collection by MacFarlane in 1909 (PENN). The specimen is correctly identified and there is a written account of MacFarlane visiting the site on the label in 1909, so the record is plausible.
