Jepson Flora Project: Jepson Interchange for California Floristics    
Prunus angustifolia Marshall var. varians W. Wight & Hedrick
Initial Editorial Analysis 27 Jan 2010
Source of Report for California Best, C., J. T. Howell, W. Knight, I. Knight, and M. Wells. 1996. A Flora of Sonoma County. California Native Plant Society, Sacramento.
Initial Editorial Comments Prunus angustifolia Marshall var. varians Wight & Hedrick, not Prunus angustifolia Marshall var. angustifolia (as reported by Kartesz & Meacham, under that name), was included by Best et al. (Source) in A Flora of Sonoma County, and indicated therein to be a rare escape from cultivation, collected from Pitkin Marsh in 1952 by Rubtzoff.
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 4 Jan 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the White in this author citation should be changed to W. White. [Therefore, author citation corrected to W. Wight, from White previously in this Index, 4 Jan 2007.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Joseph R. Rohrer see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Prunus angustifolia Marshall var. varians W. Wight & Hedrick is not to be included, without explanation. [Since it evidently has not been collected outside cultivation since 1952 (see Best et al., above), it seems most appropriate at this time to treat this taxon as an historical waif (and therefore not treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]).]
