Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 11 Mar 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1, based necessarily on an article by Rudolf Schmid & Melvin D. Turner (Madroño 24:68--74. 1977) because the original protologue wasn't readily available, indicates: that Darmera peltata was published by Andreas Voss (Voss in Authors of Plant Names) in Gærtnerisches Zentral-Blatt 1:646 (1899); that the basionym is Saxifraga peltata, published by George Bentham (Benth. in Authors of Plant Names) in Plantas Hartwegianas 311 (1839); and that Bentham ascribed the name to "Torr. in litt." but supplied his own Latin description. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Darmera peltata (Torr. ex Benth.) Voss, from Darmera peltata (Torr.) Voss previously in this Index, 27 Apr 2009.]
