Mocino et Sesse.
A very early botanical collector in California was Jose Mariano Mocino whom A. Menzies (Vancouver Expedition) met in the north. When at Monterey he must have collected there Ribes speciosum Pursh. He regarded it as new and it was given the name "R. ? fuchsioides. Moc. & Ses. This name of Mocino and Sesse I find in G.L. Berlandier's paper, Memoire sur la famille des Grosulariees (Mem. Soc. Phys. Geneve 3 [superscript] 121: pls. 1-3, 1826), where is given a plate (3 [Superscript] III) of Ribes stramineum Smith (Reese, Cycl. 30: n. 30) which is a synonym of R. speciosum Pursh. "R. stramineum Smith" of Berlandier is a slip for R. stamineum Berl there is cited as synonym: R. ? fuchsioides Moc. et Ses. flor. Mexic. ined. This name I do not find in Mocino et Sesse,
Flora Mexicana in La Naturaleza. Is it Calq. Des.?
