Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 Jan 2005 e-mail from Bob Allen see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Centaurium (Gentianaceae) has been split up and the California species placed in Zeltnera, citing Mansion, G. 2004. A new classification of the polyphyletic genus Centaurium Hill (Chironiidae-Gentianaceae): description of the New World endemic Zeltnera, and reinstatement of Gyrandra Griseb. and Schenkia Griseb. Taxon 53: 719-740. [Mansion treats this taxon as Zeltnera muhlenbergii (Griseb.) Mansion, and indicates it for CA; James S. Pringle, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] author, is recognizing Zeltnera, and evidently will include this taxon for CA.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by James S. Pringle see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 confirms that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Centaurium muehlenbergii (Griseb.) Piper is to be treated as a synonym of Zeltnera muehlenbergii.
