Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Aug 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that Geranium viscosissimum was published in Index Seminum (St. Petersburg) 11, Suppl.:18 (1846), wherein it was ascribed to "Fisch., Mey." referring to two of the authors of the work, F.E.L. Fischer and C.A. Meyer (Fisch. & C.A. Mey. in Authors of Plant Names); that the species account was signed "C. A. M." (C.A. Meyer), which probably explains the Kartesz & Meacham citation of Fisch. & C.A. Mey. ex C.A. Mey.; and that, nevertheless, the correct citation is Geranium viscosissimum Fisch. & C. A. Mey. according to Art. 46.2 of ICBN 2000, which states, in part, "Art. 46.4 notwithstanding, authorship of a new name or combination must always be accepted as ascribed [Fisch. & C. A. Mey.], even when it differs from authorship of the publication [C. A. Mey.], when at least one author [C. A. Mey.] is common to both." [Therefore, author citation is correct as given in this Index.]
