Opuntia ×fosbergii C. B. Wolf

Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Synonyms Cited in The Jepson Manual Opuntia bigelovii Engelm. var. hoffmannii Fosb.
Initial Editorial Analysis 6 Apr 2011
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments "2 sets of genes probably come from O. bigelovii. If other parent sp. is O. echinocarpa, O. X munzii should be considered a diploid form." in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], so evidently some doubt as to hybrid origin, and possibly to be replaced with non-hybrid form of name, Opuntia fosbergii.
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 11 Mar 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to Marc Baker (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] co-author for Opuntia), there now is wide acceptance of Cylindropuntia for the "true chollas", so that Cylindropuntia X fosbergii C. B. Wolf) Rebman et al. (in D. J. Pinkava, J. P. Rebman, & M. A. Baker, J. Arizona-Nevada Acad. Sci. 33:150. 2001) is to be used for the taxon treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] as Opuntia X fosbergii.
Correspondence 2 22 Dec 2008 e-mail from Bruce D. Parfitt, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], Opuntia X fosbergii C. B. Wolf is indeed to be treated as Cylindropuntia X fosbergii (C. B. Wolf) Rebman et al..
