Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 22 Jan 2002 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates UC1545478 (White Mtns.), formerly identified as Carex parryana var. hallii, received back from loan with annotation of Carex idahoa L. H. Bailey, theretofore evidently not known from CA. [Indicated no closer to California than OR in Kartesz & Meacham.]
Correspondence 2 10 Apr 2007 Interchange Feedback from from Richard Moe see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 is reference to comments by Barbara L. Wilson on UC1545478 (cf. Correspondence 1) in the Consortium of California Herbaria Database, which include, "After looking at a high-resolution photograph, I am certain this is not Carex idahoa because the pistillate scales are shorter than the perigynia. I cannot annotate it."
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Peter Zika, Andrew Hipp, & Joy Mastrogiuseppe see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Carex parryana var. hallii (Olney) Rydb., and its synonym (and basionym), Carex hallii Olney, as well as Carex parryana var. unica L.H. Bailey, are all to be treated as names that in California have been misapplied to plants belonging instead to Carex idahoa L. H. Bailey.
