Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis Nov 1 2001
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments author citation uncertain, (Dougl. ex Hook.) Dougl. ex Torr. & A. Gray in Kartesz & Meacham, various of these in International Plant Names Index
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved as to Correspondence 1, but not Correspondence 2]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 8 Jan 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Mentzelia albicaulis was published by Torr. & A. Gray in Flora of North America 1: 534 (1840), and that these authors ascribed the name to "Dougl. mss." and based it on Bartonia albicaulis, which was published by William Jackson Hooker (Hook. in Authors of Plant Names) in Flora Boreali-Americana 1:222 (1832), wherein Hooker included the name and a short diagnosis ascribed to "Douglas, MSS. apud Hort. Soc. Lond." [Therefore, author citation corrected to Mentzelia albicaulis (Douglas) Douglas ex Torr. & A. Gray, from Mentzelia albicaulis Hook (without period) previously in this Index, 9 Jan 2008.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates expanded author citation to be Mentzelia albicaulis (Douglas ex Hook.) Douglas ex Torr. & A. Gray [which does not agree with this Index; awaiting documentation].
