Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Jan 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Isolepis carinata was published by John Torrey (Torr. in Authors of Plant Names) in Annals of the Lyceum of Natural History of New York 3:349-350 (1836), wherein Torrey ascribed the name to "Hook. & Arn. Mss." but provided his own description. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Isolepis carinata Hook. & Arn. ex Torr., from Isolepis carinata Hook. & Arn. previously in this Index, 7 Feb 2007.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by S. Galen Smith see Comment 2
