Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 17 Jun e-mail from David J. Keil see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the PLANTS database lists Convolvulus simulans as a synonym of Convolvulus equitans and includes California in the range of the former [actually, of the latter]; that these are distinctly different species that were mistakenly synonymized by Kartesz & Meacham; and that California should be excluded from the range of Convolvulus equitans unless voucher documentation can be provided.
