Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Current Jepson Flora Project Synonyms Downingia immaculata Munz & I. M. Johnst.
Initial Editorial Analysis Nov 1 2001
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments author citation uncertain, (Greene) Greene ex Jeps. in Kartesz & Meacham; originally Jeps. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; "why not (Greene) Pattan? as in LWB 10:10. 1963?" in Rosatti notes (at this point, I do not know what LWB is)
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 26 Feb 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that reference in comments to "Pattan?" should be Rattan [Editor could not read his own writing in Rosatti notes] and LWB is Leaflets of Western Botany [Editor can't explain this failure of memory]; the basionym is Bolelia cuspidata Greene in Erythea 3:101 (1895); Downingia cuspidata was published by Volney Rattan in West Coast Botany, 1898, p. 48, where he gives an indirect but satisfactory reference to the basionym, Bolelia cuspidata Greene (although the paper in Erythea by Greene was not cited explicitly by Rattan, it may be inferred by a reading of the protologue that Rattan must have been referring to this publication). [Therefore, author citation corrected to Downingia cuspidata (Greene) Rattan, from Downingia cuspidata Jepson in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], printing 1, and Downingia cuspidata (Greene) Greene in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], subsequent printings, and this Index, 10 Mar 2003.]
