Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Oct 2004 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Coryphantha vivipara is among names returned in a search of Flora North America for taxa reported for California currently not found in this Index. [Escobaria included in Coryphanta, and Coryphantha vivipara var. bisbeeana (Orcutt) L.D.Benson in L.D.Benson (Escobaria vivipara (Nutt.) Buxb. var. bisbeeana (Orcutt) D. R. Hunt) listed as synonym of Coryphantha vivipara (Nutt.) Britton & Rose, in Flora North America treatment by Allan D. Zimmerman & Bruce D. Parfitt (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author).]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Edward F. Anderson see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 does not address Escobaria vivipara (Nutt.) Buxb. var. bisbeeana (Orcutt) D. R. Hunt. [Both Coryphantha vivipara (Nutt.) Britton & Rose var. bisbeeana (Orcutt) L. D. Benson and Coryphantha vivipara (Nutt.) Britton & Rose var. rosea (Clokey) L. D. Benson listed as synonyms of Coryphantha vivipara (Nutt.) Britton & Rose in Flora North America; the latter is recognized and treated as native to CA, so it is reasonable to conclude that the former should be considered a synonym of the latter, in lieu of a statement from Edward F. Anderson.]
