Polycarpaea corymbosa

Family:CARYOPHYLLACEAE
Species:Polycarpaea corymbosa (L.)Lam.
Common Name:OLD-MAN'S CAP
Plant Notes:Its presence in Florida was originally conceived to be a rare endemic described as P. nebulosa (Lakela 1962, 1963). The lack of a clear morphological distinction and its disjunction in disturbed sites in Florida suggest it is an introduction of the widespread P. corymbosa.
