Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Ron Kelley misspelled the epithet for Cryptantha spithamaea by not following the original spelling in the protologue, which is "spithamaea", and that this is the source for all but one occurrence of "Cryptantha spithamea" returned on a Google search conducted 15 Dec 2010.
