Carex hystericina Muhl. ex Willd.

Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis 15 Aug 2003
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments author citation corrected from Muhlenb. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (Muhl. in Authors of Plant Names), in accordance with Rosatti notes; spelling of epithet uncertain, "hystericina" in Kartesz & Meacham, both spellings in International Plant Names Index-Index Kewensis, IPNI-Gray Card Index; according to Voss, an expert in Carex as well as botanical nomenclature who used "hystericina" in Michigan Flora, "The original spelling of the specific epithet is often 'corrected' from the original form to hystricina."
Variant Spelling Carex hystricina
Editorial Recommendation spelling of epithet to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 12 Aug 2003 e-mail from Dan Post see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that in Flora North America, Carex hystricina is not indicated for CA, and that Flora North America authors A. A. Reznicek and Bruce A. Ford spell the specific epithet "hystericina". [Spelling of epithet corrected to "hystericina", from "hystricina" originally in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] and this Index, 15 Aug 2003.]
Correspondence 2 16 Jun 2004 Interchange Feedback from Misa Ward see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that the CNDDB and California Native Plant Society recently received a field survey form reporting Carex hystericina Willd. from a wetland, at 914 m, on 2 June 2002, in Lake County (Bartlett Springs Quad), based on a voucher (in a personal collection) identified by Kerry Heise at the Hopland Field Station
Correspondence 3 27 Aug 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that Carex hystericina Muhl. ex Willd. was published by Willdenow in Species Plantarum, ed. 4 4:282--283 (1805), where he ascribed the name to "Mühlenb. in litt." and provided his own diagnosis. [Therefore, author citation expanded to Carex hystericina Muhl. ex Willd., from Carex hystericina Willd. previously in this Index, 28 Sep 2004.]
