Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Lisa M. Schultheis see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, based on geography, interfertility, cytology, and sequences of nuclear as well as chloroplast DNA, _Downingia yina_ (as recognized in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]) split here into 3 morphologically indistinguishable spp. whose limits need further study: _Downingia yina_ (as now circumscribed, excluded from The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], although possibly in -- yet not documented for -- n CaR), _Downingia pulcherrima_, and _Downingia willamettensis_, after the last 2 had been united under the last 1, and that taxon in turn had been transferred to the first, as _Downingia yina var. major_ (leaving the remainder of that sp. under _Downingia yina var. yina).
