Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 2 Oct 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that Lippia wrightii (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]1 synonym of Aloysia wrightii) was published by John Torrey (Torr. in Authors of Plant Names) in Rep. U.S. Mex. Bound., Bot. 126 (1859); that Torrey ascribed the name to "Gray in Sill. Jour." but provided his own Latin description; and that Torrey's reference to Gray (A. Gray in Authors of Plant Names) (American Journal of Science II 16:98. 1854), was to a name lacking a description and therefore a nom nud. [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected and expanded to Lippia wrightii A. Gray ex Torr., from Lippia wrightii Torr. invalid previously in this Index, 16 Oct 2006.]
Correspondence 2 2 Oct 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Aloysia wrightii was published by Abrams (Illustrated Flora of the Pacific States 3:613. 1951), based on Lippia wrightii A. Gray ex Torr., and that although Abrams ascribed the combination to Heller (A. Heller in Authors of Plant Names) in Muhlenbergia 1:147 (1906), Heller in fact provided neither a reference to Torrey's basionym nor a description, and Abrams gave the correct reference to basionym. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Aloysia wrightii (A. Gray ex Torr.) Abrams, from Aloysia wrightii Abrams previously in this Index, 16 Oct 2006.]
