CommentsHymenocallis franklinensis is a narrow endemic of the lower Ochlockonee River system of the Florida panhandle, possibly including the Sopchoppy River. Only a few collections have been made (L. C. Anderson 13,382, 18,299; G. L. Smith, M. A. Garland & G. R. Knight 1631; G. L. Smith & L. C. Anderson 1717). The plants bear a strong resemblance to H. crassifolia. The leaves of the two species are nearly identical in form in the field and on herbarium sheets, but the flowers of H. franklinensis are larger, and the scape bracts are broader at the base and taper in the distal half.
