Source of Report for California Hrusa et al., Madrono 49(2)61-98. 2002: DIST: deltaic GV: Hrusa et al. Current Status: Casual: DOC: Contra Costa Co.: Antioch National Wildlife Refuge, Stamm Unit, two juvenile individuals on riparian margin, apparently spontaneous but source not evident. May 26, 2001, B. Ertter et al. 17563 (UC): NOTES: A fairly common landscape volunteer, but seedlings generally restricted to irrigated sites and seldom allowed to mature.
Initial Editorial Comments according to Hrusa et al., in California occurring as a waif, although conditions of cited occurrence ("two juvenile individuals on riparian margin, apparently spontaneous but source not evident") evidently would qualify for inclusion in the flora according to criteria employed by Jepson Flora Project (3 Feb 2003); author citation uncertain, (L.) T. Nees & C. H. Eberm. according to International Plant Names Index-APNI; Cinnamomum camphora (L.) T. Nees & C. H. Ebermaier invalid in Flora North America.
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [+- resolved; see Comments]
