Initial Editorial Analysis 22 Apr 2011
Source of Report for California Munz, P.A. in collaboration with D. D. Keck. 1968; voucher at RSA, as cited in Kartesz & Meacham
Initial Editorial Comments in no way mentioned in Munz, Munz Supplement (despite Kartesz & Meacham citation), The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; Mentha citrata listed as synonym in Kartesz & Meacham, in turn listed as synonym of Mentha X piperita in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; listed with Mentha spicata as one of parental species of Mentha X piperita, but not otherwise treated, in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 24 Sep 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse, including e-mail from Doreen Smith see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Art Tucker has included Mentha aquatica in his The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] treatment as naturalized in many bioregions including CCo, that evidently none of the 40 records in the Consortium of California Herbaria database is from Marin Co., and that Doreen Smith probably will deposit in UC/JEPS material from "the Kehoe Beach trail marsh" on Pt. Reyes.
