Lonicera hispidula (Lindl.) Douglas ex Torr. & A. Gray var. vacillans A. Gray

Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis 16 Oct 2007
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments see comments, summary under Lonicera hispidula; also, author citation uncertain with respect to var. vacillans, (Benth.) A. Gray in Kartesz & Meacham [but only A. Gray in Version 2.0, so considered resolved in this Index, 2 Oct 2006.]
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Charles D. Bell see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the citation of "var. californica Jepson" as a synonym of Lonicera hispidula var. vacillans in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] was a mistake [it is not listed in International Plant Names Index, either, on 16 Oct 2007], and that it was Lonicera hispidula var. californica (Torr. & A. Gray) Rehder, nom. superfl. that should have been listed. Correspondence 1 also indicates that infraspecific taxa are not to be recognized in Lonicera hispidula in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], due to excessive variation in the sp. throughout its geographic range.
