Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 7 Sep 2016 email from Marc Baker see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to Marc Baker, author of Opuntia in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], this taxon is well-established, "much more than simply spontaneous", so that it is more appropriate to use the non-hybrid form of the name. [Therefore, Opuntia X vaseyi (J. M. Coult.) Britton & Rose is to be treated as a synonym of Opuntia vaseyi (J. M. Coult.) Britton & Rose.]
