Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 20 Dec 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Atriplex phyllostegia was published by S. Watson in Proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences 9: 108 (1874), based on Obione phyllostegia also published by S. Watson, in United States Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. Botany 291 (1871), and that Watson ascribed the name to "Torr." but stated that the descriptions were his own. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Atriplex phyllostegia (Torr. ex S. Watson) S. Watson, from Atriplex phyllostegia (Torr.) S. Watson previously in this Index, 14 Jan 2008.]
Correspondence 2 3 May 2013 e-mail from Staci Markos, including forwarded e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 2
