Initial Editorial Comments according to Source b, status uncertain, evidently occurring more or less as a waif, not collected recently (24 Feb 2003)
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Michael Nee see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Capsicum annuum L. does not merit inclusion, in that it is not often found outside of cultivation. [Therefore, it seems most appropriate at this time to treat this taxon as an historical waif (and therefore not treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]).]
