Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 20 Aug 2003 e-mail from Dan Post see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Flora North America has Danthonia unispicata (Thurb.) Munro ex Vasey [therefore, author citation needs to be checked]
Correspondence 2 26 Aug 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates, as explained in an International Plant Names Index-Gray Card Index entry, that George Thurber (Thurb. in Authors of Plant Names) published Danthonia californica var. unispicata in Geological Survey of California, Botany 2:294 (1880), and listed the unpublished name "Danthonia unispicata, Munro in Herb." in synonymy; that when George Vasey (Vasey in Authors of Plant Names) published "Danthonia unispicata Munro" in A Descriptive Catalogue of the Grasses of the United States 59 (1885) without a description, the Munro ascription referred indirectly to Thurber's synonym reference and therefore to Thurber's Danthonia californica var. unispicata, which serves as the basionym; and that such an indirect reference to a basionym was sufficient at that time (ICBN 2006 Art. 32.5 & 32.6) for valid publication. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Danthonia unispicata (Thurb.) Munro ex Vasey, from Danthonia unispicata (Thurb.) Macoun previously in this Index, 10 Sep 2008.]
