Description

I'm not familiar enough with Florida wetland plants to be confident of this ID. I thought this might be Tropical pickerelweed (Pontederia rotundifolia), but I certainly hope it is not. The leaves of this emergent aquatic plant are about 2" to 4" across. This patch of plants was photographed along the boardwalk in ~freshwater in the Bayou Marcus Wetlands near Pensacola, FL. I couldn't find any flowers. I can't find it in any of the common Florida wetland guides.

I thought I was going to be able to ID this sandbur on the loose sand of the coastal barrier island easily due to the size of the plant and burs but I can't separate C. pauciflorus and C. tribuloides from these photos. The decumbent stems were nearly 3 ft long and the burs were larger than what I see on the abundant C. incertus at home.

Although two species of mole crab are reported to occur on the gulf side of Florida, I'm having no success finding any info on how to distinguish the two, E. benedicti and E. talpoida. It appears that benedicti should be the more numerous/expected species in the Florida panhandle*, but I don't want to play probabilities without further information.
