Ptilimnium texense J.M. Coult St Rose is currently treated as either a synonym of P costatum (Elliott) Raf. or a hybrid of P. capillaceum (Michx.) Raf. and P. nuttalhi (DC ) Britton. A study utilizing molecular, morphological, and ecological data was undertaken to determine its taxonomic status. Evidence is presented for the recognition of P. texense as a distinct species. Píilimnium texense is endemic to the West Gulf Coastal Plain where it occurs in bogs, acid seeps, and wet pine savannas in east central Texas, west central Louisiana, and southern Arkansas. A key to the genus Ptilimnium Raf is provided.
