Tracy 105, 1896-97, Eureka); in no way mentioned in Munz Southern California Flora, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; indicated as widespread in NA in Kartesz & Meacham; according to Source d, status uncertain, but thought to occur in California only as a waif (14 Feb 2003)
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 27 Apr 2005 Interchange Feedback from David J. Keil see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that a clover that is "apparently well established" on the property of a seed grower in the area of San Luis Obispo has been identified by David J. Keil as Trifolium resupinatum L.
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Michael A. Vincent see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Trifolium resupinatum L. is to be treated as a waif, not naturalized in CA, with a note that it has been collected in California from an "apparently well established" population "on the property" of a seed grower. [If conditions of the collection were to qualify for inclusion in the flora (i.e., if the conditions were +- wild), then it would be appropriate to treat the plants as naturalized (since they are "well established"), but until that has been determined, a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-3 is most appropriate.]
