No Reference Specified   Ohio buckeye; A. glabra; is the most common or the only buckeye species in both the Western Miami territory. Both Yellow; A. flava; and Ohio buckeyes are present in Eastern Miami terroritory; with the Ohio buckeye still being the most prevalent. Therefore; the Miami word for buckeye probably refers to both species but came to commonly mean the Ohio buckeye; in more recent times; including those of Dunn.
