Initial Editorial Analysis Nov 1 2001

Initial Editorial Comments author citation uncertain, (L.) W. P. C. Barton (both = Authors of Plant Names) in Kartesz & Meacham, as well as in Voss, Michigan Flora
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 3 Aug 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that the attribution of the name to Bartram appears to be the result of confusion with W.P.C. Barton; that there is no reference to Chimaphila in Bartram's Travels, the most likely work in which he would have published a new name; and that W.P.C. Barton (Vegetable materia medica of the United States 1: 17. 1817) is the author according to Garry Wallace (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] author) and TROPICOS [in addition to Kartesz & Meacham and Voss]. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Chimaphila umbellata (L.) W. P. C. Barton, from Chimaphila umbellata (L.) Bartram previously in this Index, 15 Aug 2007.]
