Monotropa brittonii Small. Scrub Ghost-pipe, Southern Ghost-pipe. Phen: Nov. Hab: Florida scrub, longleaf pine sandhills, other dry, sandy habitats. Dist: Peninsular FL, apparently extending northwards to e. NC and westward to se. LA on the Coastal Plain (J. Freudenstein, pers. comm., 2019).

ID notes:Monotropa brittonii is noticeable as different from Monotropa uniflora in its xeric habitat and greater suffusion of reddish or salmon color in the stems, flowers, and fruits, but is most authoritatively separated by the finer scale differences in the key.

Origin/Endemic status: Endemic

Taxonomy Comments: Molecular evidence suggests that M. brittonii is worthy of taxonomic recognition; additional work is underway to understand its distribution and morphology. See Keesling (2020) for discussion.

Synonymy: = S, Keesling (2020), Keesling, Broe, & Freudenstein (2021); < Monotropa uniflora L. – FNA8, K3, K4, RAB, WH3, Luteyn et al (1996)
