Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Michael Nee see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicated that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Solanum dimidiatum Raf. was to be downgraded, from naturalized (in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]) to waif, without further discussion and despite the fact it was indicated to be a NOXIOUS WEED in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], and is indicated by the California Department of Food and Agriculture as a Noxious Weed List A. [Both records in CCH on 8 Aug 2008 are of urban weeds, which would earn a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-4; nevertheless, given its status as a NOXIOUS WEED, a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-2 is retained here.]
Correspondence 2 2 Sep 2008 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax, including forwarded e-mails from Fred Hrusa of CDFA and Michael Nee see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that records in CCH and CDA best support treatment of Solanum dimidiatum Raf. in California as an urban weed.
