Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates author citation to be Malacothrix glabrata (A. Gray) A. Gray, with reference to Synonym Fl. N. Am. 1(2):422. 1884, and basionym M. californica DC. var. glabrata A. Gray in D. C. Eaton, Bot. King Expl. 201. 1871. [Author citation corrected from Malacothrix glabrata A. Gray, originally in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1].]
Correspondence 2 13 Feb 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates: that the combination Malacothrix glabrata was published by Asa Gray (A. Gray in Authors of Plant Names) in Synoptical Flora of North America 1(2): 422. 1884, based on Malacothrix californica var. glabrata published by Daniel C. Eaton (D.C. Eaton in Authors of Plant Names) in United States Geological Expolration [sic] of the Fortieth Parallel. Botany 201. 1871, wherein Eaton ascribed the combination to "Gray, Ms." but provided his own diagnosis; and that, according to John Strother (13 Feb 2006 pers. comm. to Jeff Greenhouse), the author citation in Flora North America [therefore] will be Malacothrix glabrata (A. Gray ex D.C. Eaton) A. Gray [cf. Editorial Comments 1]. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Malacothrix glabrata (A. Gray ex D. C. Eaton) A. Gray, from Malacothrix glabrata (A. Gray) A. Gray previously in this Index, 13 Feb 2006.]
