Initial Editorial Analysis 20 Nov 2006
Source of Report for California Rosatti SMASCH note: Taxon not treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], although included in Munz supplement; Cuscuta denticulata Engelm. var. vetchii (Brandegee) T. Beliz according to Kartesz.
Initial Editorial Comments four records in SMASCH; treated as in SMASCH note, i.e., as synonym of Cuscuta denticulata var. veatchii (Brandegee) T. Beliz, also in Kartesz & Meacham; indicated for Panamint Mtns., with "C. veatchii apoda Yuncker. C. salina a. Yuncker" listed as syns, in Munz Supplement (p.86); evidently treated as Cuscuta veatchii (in turn treated as minor variant of Cuscuta denticulata), but not specifically mentioned, in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1].
