Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 23 Apr 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, based on DNA studies, Wendy Zomlefer and Walter Judd (Novon 12:299--308. 2002) have resurrected the genus Toxicoscordion for the species of Zigadenus occurring in CA, so that Toxicoscordion brevibracteatus (M.E. Jones) R.R. Gates would be used for this taxon, [if this taxonomy is adopted by the Jepson Flora Project author; treated as Zigadenus brevibracteatus (M. E. Jones) H. M. Hall in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]].
Correspondence 2 22 Feb 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Toxicoscordion brevibracteatum is the spelling used by the The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] co-authors, that this is consistent with the neuter endings of the other 5 adjectival epithets in the The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] treatment as well as in this Index, and that Gates just failed to correct the ending when he made the comb. nov. based on Zigadenus brevibracteatus, even though he retained the neuter ending for the other adjectival epithets in the genus. [Therefore, spelling of epithet corrected to Toxicoscordion brevibracteatum (M. E. Jones) R. R. Gates, from Toxicoscordion brevibracteatus (M. E. Jones) R. R. Gates previously in this Index, 26 Feb 2008.]

Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Zigadenus brevibracteatus (M.E. Jones) H.M. Hall is to be treated as a synonym of Toxicoscordion brevibracteatum (M. E. Jones) R. R. Gates.
