Initial Editorial Comments spelling of epithet uncertain, "caerulea" in Kartesz & Meacham, International Plant Names Index-APNI, Hrusa et al., 2002; "coerulea" in Hrusa et al., ms; according to Source c, occurring in California only as an agricultural or garden weed, but difficult to eradicate in such situations and therefore a threat to escape and become naturalized outside cultivation (4 Feb 2003)
Variant Spelling Passiflora cerulea
Editorial Recommendation spelling of epithet to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 26 Aug 2008 e-mail from Richard Moe, in response to e-mail query from Mary A. Kessler see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that spelling of the specific epithet should be corrected to "caerulea" because that is what Linnaeus used in Species Plantarum. [Therefore, spelling of epithet corrected to "caerulea", from "cerulea" previously in this Index, 28 Aug 2008.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Passiflora caerulea L. is to be recognized and treated as naturalized in CA.
