Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 15 Jan 2013 e-mail from Bruce Baldwin, including forward e-mail from Peter Zika, author of Carex in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 includes reference to a paper Peter Zika and B. L. Wilson (Madroño 59: 171-180. 2012) in which it is shown that extensive overlap between Carex albida L. H. Bailey and Carex lemmonii W. Boott in characters of the perigynium, achene, inflorescence, and foliage preclude recognition as distinct species, so that the former is treated as a synonym of the latter, which is the earlier name.
