Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 $ 8 Feb 2002, from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates, without further explanation, that the correct citation is Geranium retrorsum L' Hérit ex DC. [In Abrams (p. 3), Geranium retrorsum L'Hér. in heading, Geranium retrorsum L'Hér. ex DC. Prod. 1:644. 1824 in list of syns, so possibly other citations are similarly erroneous abbreviations of the full citation. Nevertheless, author citation still in need of checking, beginning with Prodromus.]
Correspondence 2 2002 pers. comm. from Barbara Ertter see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 author citation indicated, without discussion, to be L' Hérit ex DC, in Aedo, 2001, The Genus Geranium in North America II. Perennial species (Anales Jard. Bot. Madrid 59(1):3-65).
Correspondence 3 30 Aug 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that Geranium retrorsum was published by Augustin Pyramus de Candolle (DC. in Authors of Plant Names) in Prodromus 1:644 (1824), wherein he ascribed the name to "L'her! mss." but supplied his own description. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Geranium retrorsum L'Hér. ex DC., from Geranium retrorsum L'Hér. previously in this Index, 1 Sep 2005.]
Correspondence 4 Treatment submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Carlos Aedo see Comment 4
Editorial Comments 4 Correspondence 4 indicates that plants in California previously misidentified as Geranium retrorsum belong instead to Geranium core-core Steud.
