Galium angustifolium Nutt. ex A. Gray

Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis Nov 1 2001
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments author citation corrected from Nutt. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], consistent with Rosatti notes, Kartesz & Meacham (Nutt. ex A. Gray in Kartesz & Meacham); Nutt. ex Torr. & A. Gray in International Plant Names Index-Index Kewensis
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 24 Apr 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that: the International Plant Names Index (Index Kewensis) reference to Torr. & A. Gray (Fl. N. Am. 2:22. 1841) is incorrect because this publication of the name is not valid; Galium angustifolium, ascribed [by Torr. & A. Gray] to Nuttall, is given [by Torr. & A. Gray] only as a synonym of an unranked infraspecific taxon under Galium trichocarpum, and, according to Art. 34.1 of ICBN (2000, St. Louis Code), "A name is not validly published . . . (c) when it is merely cited as a synonym"; valid publication was provided by A. Gray (Bot. California 1:285. 1876), who also correctly ascribed the name to Nuttall.
