Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 3 Jan 2008 e-mail (and correction in 7 Jan 2008 e-mail) from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Payson (Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden 14:278. 1927) included Eritrichium glomeratum var humile A. Gray, in part (Proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences 10:61. 1874) and Oreocarya humilis Greene (Pittonia 3:112. 1896) as synonyms of Cryptantha humilis, and that although Payson indicated Greene as the author of the basionym, in fact Greene based his combination on Gray's name, in part, which serves as an indirect reference to a basionym. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Cryptantha humilis (A. Gray) Payson, from Cryptantha humilis (Greene) Payson previously in this Index, 22 Jan 2008.]
