Viola tenuipes Pollard. Section: Chamaemelanium. Southern Wedge-leaf Violet. Phen: Feb-Mar. Hab: Rich dry to dry-mesic forests. Dist: Sw. NC and c. TN south to c. SC, w. GA, FL Panhandle, and c. and nw. AL.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Resurrected from obscurity, preliminary study has demonstrated that this is distinct in a number of leaf features from the more northern V. glaberrima, occupies somewhat drier microsites, has a nearly allopatric distribution, and virtually never grows near the latter in the very small zone of sympatry. It is maintained as a distinct species here.

Synonymy: = Ballard () (in prep); < Viola tripartita Elliott – Fl2, FNA6, K4, WH3; < Viola tripartita Elliott var. glaberrima (Ging. ex Chapm.) R.M.Harper – RAB
