- T.N. Shinn, Original Tree Doctor Co., called today. Says like the rest that our cement work on grounds is all wrongly done.

- Baccharis sarothroides Gray, no. 5287 Jepson, Whipple Mts. I regard the same as Parish no. 8349 Calexico and as Schellenberg no 6 Chuckawalla Bench which last Hall calls B. sergiloides. I regard all 3 = to San Diego Orcutt which differs only in having slightly narrower heads. The pappus in all these have lanceolate dilated tips. Hall's Panamint & Brandegees Providence Mts = B. sergiloides and has quite different-looking heads from all the above. The difs. in sterile heads of the two species not well worked out. -- Jan, '13
