Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 3 Sep 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Crypsis niliaca (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) was published by A. Figari & J. De Notaris (Fig. & De Not. in Authors of Plant Names) in Memoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences de Turin, ser. 2 14:322--323 (1854). [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Crypsis niliaca Fig. & De Not., from Crypsis niliaca Figari previously in this Index, 20 Dec 2010.]
Correspondence 2 13 Mar 2014 pers. comm. (verbal inquiry) from Richard Moe see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 questions the spelling of the specific epithet of the The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym, which is spelled "niliacea" in the Jepson eFlora. [The epithet is spelled "niliaca" (of the Nile) in the protologue (Mem. Reale Accad. Sci. Torino Ser. II, xiv. (1854) 322), as well as in International Plant Names Index, and, according to Wiktionary at least, this spelling is consistent with the way this adjective is declined ("niliacus", m; "niliaca", f, the form to be used here; and "niliacum", n). Therefore, spelling of epithet of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected in Jepson eFlora, to Crypsis niliaca Fig. & De Not. (as indicated in this Index), from Crypsis niliacea Fig. & De Not. previously in the Jepson eFlora, 14 Mar 2014.]
