Conservation status

SR-P; SH, G4.


Wet pine savannas (SPS-T, WLPS, VWLPS).


Occasional. Apr(-later, especially in response to fire); May(-later, especially in response to fire). The specimens collected by the author lack seeds, which are the most accurate means of distinguishing this species from Hypoxis wrightii  . However, the floral and vegetative features (see key above) of the specimens match the descriptions of Hypoxis sessilis  , and the specimens themselves appear similar to Hypoxis sessils  specimens examined at NCU (Britt 195, Leonard and Davis SWL– 748, Radford 147, and Sorrie 12618).
