Below is a listing of the members of the Lycopodiums that are native to Georgia. Recently the members of this group have been reclassified and a new taxonomic treatment has been developed. I am herein following the treatment of the lycopodium groups as per Arthur Haines, who is associated with the Delta Institute of Natural History.
http://www.arthurhaines.com/
His treatment of native lycopodium species divides them into two families: the Huperziaceae and the Lycopodiaceae

1. HUPERZIACEAE

    1. Hyperzia appressa = Huperzia appalachiana

    2. Huperzia lucidula = Lycopodium lucidulum

2. LYCOPODIACEAE

    1. Dendrolycopodium obscurum = Lycopodium obscurum

    2. Diphasiastrum digitatum = Lycopodium digitatum

        http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500582
        http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYDI3

    3. Diphasiastrum tristachyum = Lycopodium tristachyum

        http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500584
        http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYTR

    4. Lycopodiella alopecuroides

        http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500755
        http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYAL5

   5. Lycopodiella appressa

       http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500756
       http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYAP4

   6. Lycopodiella caroliniana

       http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500995
       http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYCAC

   7. Lycopodiella cernua

       http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=200002767
       http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYCEC

   8. Lycopodiella prostrata

        http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500758
        http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYPR3

    9. Lycopodium clavatum

        http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=200002751
        http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=LYCL

     
   There is alot of ambiguity about the correct scientific names. I am more or less following the USDA
   though I accept the Huperziaceae as a valid taxon as its members are decidedly different from the
   members of the Lycopodiaceae. Note eFloras.org accepts different generic names on some of the
   species of Lycopodiella.
