Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that David Morgan (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author for Machaeranthera) intends to recognize four genera for taxa that were included in Machaeranthera in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], [so that he will treat Machaeranthera carnosa as Arida carnosa (A. Gray) D. R. Morgan & R. L. Hartm.]

Hartm. is made, for Arida arizonica (R. C. Jacks. & R. R. Johnson) D. R. Morgan & R. L. Hartm. [at the rank of species, Machaeranthera arida B.L. Turner & D.B.
