Current Jepson Flora Project Synonyms Scirpus maritimus L.; Schoenoplectus maritimus (L.) Lye
Initial Editorial Analysis 19 Aug 2010
Notes on Publication of Name Koch, Synonym Deutsch. Fl. ed. III. 2532, 1904
Source of Report for California Preston e-mail of 5 Jul 2000, "S[cirpus] maritimus L. = Bulboschoenus maritimus (L.) Palla; Smith, S. G., and G. Yatskievych. 1996. Notes on the genus Scirpus sensu lato in Missouri. Rhodora 98:168-179"
Initial Editorial Comments despite Preston citation (in which Bolboschoenus maritimus subsp. paludosus recognized but Bolboschoenus maritimus not addressed), evidently retained as Scirpus maritimus by Galen Smith, one of three The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] contributors of Scirpus, in Smith, 1995 (New combinations in North American Schoenoplectus, Bulboschoenus, Isolepis, and Trichophorum. Novon 5:97-102), "Bolboschoenus glaucus is widely confused with Scirpus maritimus L. (Schoenoplectus maritimus (L.) Lye, Bolboschoenus maritimus (L.) Palla)", p. 101; genus spelled "Bolboschoenus", despite Preston citation
