Correspondence 1: Jun 2000 pers. comm. from Alan R. Smith: Asplenium trichomanes-ramosum might be rejected, with reversion back to A. viride.
Editorial Comments 1: Correspondence 1 indicates Asplenium trichomanes-ramosum might be rejected, with reversion back to Asplenium viride.
Correspondence 2: 31 May 2002 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse: W. Greuter, et al., The International Code of Botanical Nomenclature (St. Louis Code) (2000) Article 23, Example 19 states in part "The intercalations "Trich." [Trichomanes] and "M." [Melilotus] in the names of Linnaean species of Asplenium and Trifolium, respectively, are to be deleted, so that names in the form Asplenium "Trich. dentatum" and Trifolium "M. indica", for example, are treated as A. dentatum L. and T. indicum L. (Sp. Pl.: 765, 1080. 1753)." Thus, Asplenium ramosum L. would be the accepted name. However, a proposal (number 1093) to reject this name (Zimmer, B. and W. Greuter, Taxon 43: 303-304 (1994) was approved (Appendix 4 D of the St. Louis Code) leaving Asplenium viride Huds. as the accepted name. Alan Smith, TJM author, (personal communication) indicates this is the name which must be used. DECISION JAG/BGB 5/30/02: rejected per St. Louis Code. // Jeff
Editorial Comments 2: Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to Art. 23, Example 19 of the St Louis Code [ICBN 2000], the intercalation by Linnaeus of "Trich." (for Trichomanes) in some names is to be disregarded. This would have meant that Asplenium ramosum L. would have been the correct name for this taxon, except that this name has been rejected by the same Code in favor of Asplenium viride Huds.

Athyrium filix-femina (L.) Roth ex Mert.
Family: DRYOPTERIDACEAE
Source: KM
Comments: Athyrium filix-femina var. cyclosorum, only, treated in TJM; "named vars in w NA seem indistinct" in TJM
Correspondence 1: Jun 2000 pers. comm. from Alan R. Smith: "ex Mert." added to author citation
Editorial Comments 1: Correspondence 1 indicates "ex Mert." added to author citation. [Franz Karl Mertens, 1764-1831.]
Correspondence 2: 31 May 2002 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse: Original publication was in a letter by Mertens excerpted in Archiv für die Botanik (Leipzig), 2: 106 (1799). Alan Smith, TJM author, and J. Strother (personal communication) secured a partial translation of the original German and both agreed that Mertens extracted the name from Roth's manuscript, unpublished at the time, and published the name in his (Mertens') own words. Therefore, the author citation (L.) Roth ex Mert. is correct. This is also the citation in FNANM. DECISION JAG/BGB 5/30/02: add ex Mert. to author citation used in TJM
Editorial Comments 2: Correspondence 2 confirms resolution of author citation, and confirms that Mertens published the name, having taken it from Roth's ms.
