Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments "H[eleocharis] quinqueflora (F. X. Hartman) Schwarz instead of pauciflora, but I have seen no discussion as to the reason." in Munz Supplement, p. 183
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 16 Mar 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that S. Galen Smith [The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] family editor and Flora North America author of Eleocharis] treats Eleocharis pauciflora (Lightf.) Link and Eleocharis quinqueflora (Hartmann) O. Schwarz as conspecific, with Eleocharis pauciflora (Lightf.) Link as a synonym of Eleocharis quinqueflora (Hartmann) O. Schwarz because the latter is based on Scirpus quinqueflorus Hartmann (Primae Lin. Inst. Bot., ed. 2:85. 1767), which has priority over Scirpus pauciflorus Lightf., the basionym of Eleocharis pauciflorus (Flora Scotica 2:1078. 1777).
