Oxypolis ternata (Nuttall) A. Heller. Savanna Cowbane. Phen: Sep-Oct; Oct-Nov. Hab: Wet pine savannas, sandhill seepages. Dist: Scattered from se. VA south to Panhandle FL; alleged occurrences in e. TX are based on misidentifications of narrow-leafleted forms of O. rigidior (Sorrie et al. 2003)

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Edmondson’s (2005) change of the name to O. denticulata is incorrect; the type of O. denticulata is unquestionably O. rigidior (Feist 2009).

Synonymy: = C, F, Fl7, G, GW2, K1, K3, K4, MC, RAB, S, Va; = Oxypolis denticulata (Baldwin) J.R.Edm. – WH3, misapplied
