Chamaecrista deeringiana

Species:Chamaecrista deeringiana Small & Pennell
Common Name:
Plant Notes:Chamaecrista deeringiana is best recognized by its perennial roots (not a taproot like C. fasciculata) and multiple stems usually arising from the root. Anther color is apparently not diagnostic (Irwin & Barneby 1992). Collections without roots are otherwise inseparable from C. fasciculata. The distribution of C. deeringiana is rather haphazard and illogical in Florida and surrounding states (Irwin & Barneby 1982; Isely 1998; Sorrie & Leonard 1999). Additional research is needed. Biogeographically it would seem C. deeringiana would be endemic to the pine rocklands of south Florida where it was first described from. However, specimens from elsewhere are markedly similiar, such as Duncan 13615 (GA) or Carter 17729 (VSC) from Georgia.
