Gonella, M.P. 2003-2005   Miami word probably refers to either Vaccinium macrocarpon; cranberry; or V. oxycoccus; small cranberry; the latter the only species listed in Small 1903 and only these two listed in Coulter 1899. Both these species plus V. vitis-idaea; mountain cranberry; are listed in Gleason and Cronquist 1991. V. macrocarpon is the one most commonly listed and was chosen as the probable representative of neehpikica
