Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 31 Jan 2008 e-mail from Judy Gibson (Collection Manager, Botany Department (Herbarium SD), San Diego Natural History Museum) to Steven R. Hill (Family Editor of Malvaceae for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]) see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that there are 2 occurrences of Lagunaria patersonia in San Diego Co., both representing naturalized plants. [A note on the specimen in the attached scan, SD179434, indicates, "according to collector not planted; apparently naturalized.]
Correspondence 2 30 Jul 2008 e-mail from Steven R. Hill, including forwarded e-mail from Kanchi Gandhi see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to Kanchi Gandhi: Andrews published "Hibiscus patersonius" to honor Col. William Paterson; in the usual format, as a noun in genitive, the epithet in this case would be "patersonii, and as an adjective in genitive, it would be "patersonianus"; Gandhi speculates that Andrews used his epithet as an adjective, in that he has published other nouns in genitive in the usual format; "Hibiscus patersonius," although of an unusual adjectival ending, is correct, and there is no need to correct to "Hibiscus patersonianus" (or to "Hibiscus patersonii"); "Lagunaria patersonia (Andrews) G.Don" is also correct [as an adjective, it has to agree grammatically with the genus name]; and consensus, which is desirable in such uncertain cases, has been obtained from Werner Greuter as well as Gandhi's colleagues from International Plant Names Index-Kew. [Therefore, spelling of epithet correct as indicated in this Index, 12 Sep 2008.]
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Steven R. Hill see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Lagunaria patersonia (Andrews) G. Don is to be treated as naturalized in CA, in part because seeds are produced in CA, even though there is no information on seed viability, and seedlings evidently have not been reported.
