Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 $ 14 May 2002 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that rejection of Gaura mollis James in favor of Gaura parviflora Dougl. ex Lehm. is recommended. [Action based on fact Gaura mollis remained in complete obscurity for nearly all of its existence, and that it would displace a name that has long and consistently been used for a well known plant. Correction in author citation based on International Plant Names Index, "In the past, this name was ascribed to Douglas ex Hook. (Fl. Bor.-Amer. 1: 208. 1832). The type information is from Raven &Gregory (Mem. Torrey Bot. Club 23: 23. 1972)".]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Gaura mollis James is to be treated as a name that has been rejected in favor of Gaura parviflora Lehm., which is to be treated as a synonym of Oenothera curtiflora W.L. Wagner & Hoch, which is to be recognized and treated as naturalized in CA.
