Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 15 Sep 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that Gaura coccinea var. glabra (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) was published by Munz in Bulletin of the Torrey Botanical Club 65:224 (1938); that Munz ascribed the combination to "Torr. & Gray, Fl. N. Am. 1:518. 1840", and that in that work Torr. and A. Gray distinguished a variety with the symbol Greek delta, based on Gaura glabra Lehm., but failed to make the new combination; and that Munz included the basionym reference to Gaura glabra Lehm. in Hook., Flora Boreali-Americana 1:209 (1834). [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Gaura coccinea var. glabra (Lehm.) Torr. & A. Gray ex Munz, from Gaura coccinea var. glabra (Lehm.) Torr. & A. Gray previously in this Index, 15 Sep 2008.]
