Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 1 Feb 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Gilia austrooccidentalis (A.D. Grant & V.E. Grant) A.D. Grant & V.E. Grant (Aliso 4(3): 438. 1960) was based on Gilia inconspicua subsp. austrooccidentalis A.D. Grant & V.E. Grant (Aliso 3(3): 254, map 9. 1956), which was spelled without a hyphen. [This issue is addressed in various placed in ICBN (Vienna Code), somewhat inconsistently in the opinion of the Editor of this Index: Art. 60.1. states "The original spelling of a name or epithet is to be retained, except for the correction of typographical or orthographical errors and the standardizations imposed by Art. ...60.9 (hyphens)..."; Art. 60.9. states "The use of a hyphen in a compound epithet is treated as an error to be corrected by deletion of the hyphen, unless the...letters before and after the hyphen are the same, when a hyphen is permitted (see Art. 23.1 and 23.3); and Art. 23.1 states "...If an epithet consists of two or more words, these are to be united or hyphenated. An epithet not so joined when originally published is not to be rejected but, when used, is to be united or hyphenated, as specified in Art. 60.9." Use of the phrase "is permitted" (instead of, say, "is to be used") in Art. 60.9 seems to be inconsistent with the more definitive wording in Art. 60.1 ("imposed") and Art. 23.1 ("is to be united or hyphenated, as specified in Art. 60.9"), so that using a hyphen in this case seems to be most consistent with ICBN (even though Recommendation 23A.3. states, "In forming specific epithets, authors should comply also with the following suggestions: ... d. To avoid those formed of two or more hyphenated words." Therefore, spelling of epithet with hyphen retained in this Index, 7 Feb 2008.]
