Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]

Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 24 Apr 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that this name was published by Augustin Pyramus de Candolle (DC. in Authors of Plant Names), in Prodromus i:50 (1824); that DC. ascribed it to Fischer (Fisch. in Authors of Plant Names), indicating that Fisch. supplied an illustration and reported having seen a dried specimen; and that since there is no indication that Fisch. wrote the validating diagnosis, the correct author citation is Fisch. ex DC.
Correspondence 2 8 May 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Aquilegia formosa var. pauciflora (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) was published by H. Stuart Boothman (Boothman in Authors of Plant Names) in Gardeners' Chronicle ser. 3, 95:281 (1934), based on Aquilegia pauciflora Greene (Leaflets of Botanical Observation and Criticism 1:76 (1904). [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Aquilegia formosa var. pauciflora (Greene) Boothman, from Aquilegia formosa var. pauciflora (Greene) H. S. Boothman previously in this Index, 28 May 2008.]
