ABSTRACT
Sideroxylon reclinatum Michx. subspecies austrofloridense (Whetstone) Kartesz & Gandhi is re-diagnosed in light of new morphological data, compared with its presumed closest relatives, and the extent of its distribution is clarified. Sideroxylon reclinatum subsp. austrofloridense is endemic to subtropical rockland habitats of extreme southeastern peninsular Florida, U.S.A. These habitats face threats from exotic species invasions, fire suppression, and sea-level rise due to climate change. Sideroxylon rufohirtum Herring & Judd, sometimes considered a subspecies of S. reclinatum Michx., is here recognized as a separate species.
