Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 [for Carex pellita Muhl. ex Willd.] 13 May 2003 e-mail from Dick Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Carex pellita Muhl. ex Willd. is the accepted name for this taxon in TJDM, with Carex lanuginosa as a misapplied name. [Carex lanuginosa Michx., Carex lasiocarpa var. lanuginosa Kük. added to entry for Carex pellita Muhl. ex Willd., as misapplied names, 15 May 2003.]
Correspondence 2 27 Aug 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that according to the account for Carex pellita in Flora North America 23:497 (2002), "The name Carex lanuginosa has been used for this species in many floras, but the type of this name is C. lasiocarpa", and California is included in the distributions of Carex pellita and Carex lasiocarpa. [Therefore, change of Current Status to tentative 1a is appropriate, pending decision of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author.]
Correspondence 3 25 Jan 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that Carex lasiocarpa var. lanuginosa (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) was published by George Kükenthal (Kük. in Authors of Plant Names), in Das Pflanzenreich IV. 20(Heft 38): 748 (1909), based on Carex lanuginosa Michx. (Flora Boreali-Americana 2: 175. 1803). [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Carex lasiocarpa var. lanuginosa (Michx.) Kük., from Carex lasiocarpa var. lanuginosa Kük. previously in this Index, 31 Jan 2008.]
Correspondence 4 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Peter Zika, Andrew Hipp, & Joy Mastrogiuseppe see Comment 4
Editorial Comments 4 Correspondence 4 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Carex lanuginosa Michx. is to be treated as a name that in California has been misapplied to plants belonging instead to Carex pellita Muhl. ex Willd.
