Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 8 Jan 2012 e-mail from Bruce Baldwin see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: publication of a paper in which Garcia et al. (Amer. J. Bot. 98: 638–653. 2011) showed ITS + ETS nuclear rDNA data that Sphaeromeria is phylogenetically nested in Artemisia, as mentioned in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] under the Sphaeromeria genus description, and that Chris Hobbs' work confirms that result with additional sampling in Sphaeromeria as well as with cpDNA work; and that new combinations in Artemisia were made in Western North American Naturalist [71(2):158-163. 2011], except in the case of Sphaeromeria potentilloides var. nitrophila (with 7 records in CCH), leaving Artemisia potentilloides with no infraspecific names.
Correspondence 2 25 Feb 2013 e-mail from Bruce Baldwin see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 includes reference to a paper (2013. Jour. of Biogeography 40(3):442--454) in which Artemisia potentilloides A. Gray var. nitrophila (Cronquist) C.R. Hobbs & B.G. Baldwin is published, thereby establishing Artemisia potentilloides A. Gray var. potentilloides.
Pending data Artemisia potentilloides A. Gray var. potentilloides may become the accepted name for Sphaeromeria potentilloides (A. Gray) A. Heller var. potentilloides
