Microstylum morosum range
Does anyone know the range of this Microstylum? In addition to one seen by Troy Mullens at the Ft. Worth Nature Center & Refuge, I have seen it in the gardens of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) in Fort Worth and along the Trinity River floodplain in west Fort Worth. I had not previously seen this species in Texas. Troy's does not look exactly like the ones I have seen. Could this be the other Microstylum species?
