Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 18 Nov 2002 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to James Reveal, author of Eriogonum for Flora North America, Eriogonum foliosum S. Watson is taxonomically different from Eriogonum microtheca Nutt., and that Eriogonum microtheca var. simpsonii (Benth.) Reveal and Eriogonum microtheca var. foliosum (Torr. & A. Gray) Reveal are taxonomic synonyms, with the former having priority.
Correspondence 2 18 Feb 2005 e-mail from James L. Reveal see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 confirms that Eriogonum microtheca Nutt. var. foliosum (Torr. & A. Gray) Reveal will be treated as a synonym of Eriogonum microtheca Nutt. var. simpsonii (Benth.) Reveal in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2].
