Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 10 Dec 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that in the protologue for Eriogonum caespitosum Nutt. (J. Acad. Nat. Sci.Phila. 7:50--51. 1834) the epithet is spelled "cçspitosum" (with a ligature), which must be retained -- with the ligature separated -- to give "caespitosum" according to ICBN 2000 (Art. 60.1 and 60.6). [Therefore, spelling of epithet corrected to "caespitosum", from "cespitosum" previously in this Index, 13 Dec 2004.]
