Discovered in 1968, Harperocallis is the only genus endemic to the Apalachicola River region of Florida’s western panhandle, where numerous endemic species occur (D. B. Ward ). Carpel numbers often greater than 3, to 6, are frequently encountered (J. D. Ambrose 1975, 1980; L. C. Anderson and G. L. Smith 1994). The capsule is primarily septicidal, similar to those in Tofieldia, Triantha, and Pleea (J. D. Ambrose 1975, 1980; F. H. Utech 1993), and not simply loculicidal as originally described (S. McDaniel 1968; R. K. Godfrey ).
