Jepson Flora Project: Jepson Interchange for California Floristics


Ceanothus serrulatus McMinn

Initial Editorial Analysis 19 Aug 2009
Source of Report for California Munz, P.A. in collaboration with D. D. Keck. 1968, as cited in Kartesz & Meacham
Initial Editorial Comments "supposed hybrid between C. prostratus and C. cordulatus" in Munz; "incl in C. prostratus" in Appendix III, but not otherwise mentioned in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 20 Aug 2008 and 28 Aug 2008 e-mails from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Ceanothus X serrulatus McMinn, pro sp. is now in SMASCH as Ceanothus serrulatus McMinn, since Ceanothus X serrulatus McMinn might not have ever been proposed and Ceanothus serrulatus McMinn essentially stands for the same thing and is not problematic nomenclaturally. [Therefore, name changed to Ceanothus serrulatus McMinn, from Ceanothus X serrulatus McMinn, pro sp. previously in this Index, 28 Aug 2008.]
Correspondence 2 10 Aug 2009 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax, including forwarded information from Dieter H. Wilken, author of Ceanothus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to Wilken, Ceanothus X serrulatus McMinn [changed to Ceanothus serrulatus McMinn in this Index based on Correspondence 1] is a "putative and sterile hybrid [according] to McMinn, C. prostratus X C. velutinus var. velutinus".
