Although known in California since at least 1889 (Greene s.n., 1889, UC), Bellardia trixago has appeared in the southeastern United States much more recently. First collected in Texas in 1970, B. trixago was documented in Louisiana in 2007, its easternmost locality in the flora area, and it seems to be moving eastward and southeastward more quickly than northward (J. R. Singhurst et al. 2012). Bellardia trixago rarely forms dense populations in the flora area.
