Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 21 Sep 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Aptenia cordifolia was published by Schwantes (Gartenflora 77: 69. Feb. 1928) based on Mesembryanthemum cordifolium L. f. (Supplementum Plantarum 260. 1781 [1782]), and that Aptenia cordifolia of N. E. Brown (Journal of Botany, British and Foreign 66: 139. May 1928) was published later. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Aptenia cordifolia (L. f.) Schwantes, from Aptenia cordifolia (L. f.) N. E. Br. previously in this Index, 21 Sep 2007.]
Correspondence 2 21 Sep 2007 e-mail from Dieter Wilken see Comment 2
