AbstractExplains taxonomic changes in the Florida flora in the Asteraceae (daisy family) and Poaceae (grass family). The name for Aster carolinianus is changed to Symphyotrichum carolinianum. A new variety is named for Carphephorus odoratissimus. The variety, subtropicanus, occurs in southern peninsular Florida and is distinguished by a smaller growth habit and the absence of the characteristic vanilla smell found in the typical northern form.
