Type Species

Miccosukee gooseberry (Ribes echinellum) is a rare shrub which has only three known populations. The Florida population was discovered first, in 1924 at Lake Miccosukee. The South Carolina populations were found in 1957 and 1981, and the first is protected at Steven's Creek Heritage Preserve. This species is cultivated in a few places outside its native areas, as far south as Hudson, Florida[1], but does not reproduce. It is most abundant in the shade of deciduous trees on moist but well-drained soils with pH of 6.7 to 7.4.[2]
