Botanical Name
Gamochaeta antillana (Urban) Anderb.
Common Name
Delicate Everlasting
Flora of Virginia Name/Status
Not in Flora of Virginia
A little known species, similar to Gamochaeta calviceps, documented in the Virginia Coastal Plain by four collections. It is reportedly native to South America, Cuba, and the southeastern U.S., apparently reaching its northern limits in e. Virginia. However, one has to wonder if this weedy species might be an introduction in our area. In any case, herbarium specimens labelled "Gamochaeta calviceps" should be checked for misidentificaitons. See Nesom (2004, Sida 21: 1179) for more information.
Sandy fields, clearings, and roadsides. Status uncertain, but not common; currently known from just a few scattered stations in the Coastal Plain.
