Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 23 Apr 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, based on DNA studies, Wendy Zomlefer and Walter Judd (Novon 12:299--308. 2002) have resurrected the genus Toxicoscordion for the species of Zigadenus occurring in California [and have not recognized infraspecific taxa within Zigadenus micranthus Eastw.], so that Toxicoscordion micranthum (Eastw.) A. Heller would be used for this taxon [if this taxonomy is adopted by the Jepson Flora Project author].
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Dale W. McNeal Jr. & Wendy B. Zomlefer see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Zigadenus micranthus Eastw. and Zigadenus micranthus Eastw. var. micranthus are to be treated as synonyms of Toxicoscordion micranthum (Eastw.) A. Heller.
