Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 6 Apr 2000 e-mail from Barbara Ertter see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Consolida ajacis is cited as misapplied under Consolida ambigua in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]. [Actually, as Delphinium ajacis L., listed as misapplied under Consolida ambigua in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1].]
Correspondence 2 26 Aug 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 (referring to E. Janchen, Nomenklatorische Bemerkungen zur Flora Europaea, Vol. I, in Feddes Repertorium 72:34. 1965) indicates that Consolida ambigua (L.) P. W. Ball & Heywood and Delphinium ambiguum L. both have been misapplied California plants that belong instead to Consolida ajacis (L.) Schur (Delphinium ambiguum L. has three follicles, whereas the California plants in question, and Delphinium ajacis L., have one). [Therefore, Delphinium ajacis L. is to be treated as a synonym for a taxon naturalized in CA.]
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Jason A. Koontz see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 confirms for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-2a for Delphinium ajacis L..
