Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 $ 8 Feb 2002, from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 confirms that Mary Barkworth, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] author, recognizes two subspecies in Achnatherum lemmonii, both in CA, in turn confirming Current Status as 1.
Correspondence 2 1 Dec 2004 e-mail from Misa Ward see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence appended verbatim is pertinent to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] account: "Move to List 1B? Taxonomic questions remain, since plant co-occurs with nominate variety. A synonym of A. lemmonii in The Jepson Manual, but author now believes it is distinct. Threatened by grazing. See Leaflets of Western Botany 7(9):220 (1955) for original description, Madroño 31(1):48-56 (1984) for alternate taxonomic treatment, and Phytologia 74(1):1-25 (1993) for revised nomenclature."
