Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 is a query from Mike Simpson about the fact that Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. and Lycopersicon peruvianum (L.) Mill. are both treated as such in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], as the only two members of Lycopersicon in CA, even though other workers appear to have been treating both taxa as members of Solanum, as Solanum lycopersicum L. and Solanum peruvianum L. respectively, since before The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] was published. [A series of molecular phylogenetic investigations beginning about 20 years ago have shown unambiguously that Lycopersicon is deeply nested within a monophyletic Solanum (see Peralta et al. 2008 Taxonomy of wild tomatoes and their relatives (Solanum sections Lycopersicoides, Juglandifolia, Lycopersicon; Solanaceae). Systematic Botany Monographs 84: 1--186.).
