Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Jun 2007 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that there are 17 records of Erigeron ursinus D. C. Eaton [in Manual of Flowering Plants of California (p. 1052) an accepted name, with Erigeron nevadensis var. sonnei Smiley, Erigeron elegantulus Greene as syns; in Munz, evidently ignored] in UC, and that this species is indicated no nearer to California than AZ in the treatment of Erigeron in Flora North America, authored by Guy L. Nesom [author of Erigeron for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]].
Correspondence 2 17 Aug 2007 e-mail (and pers. comms. of 27 Jun 2007, 17 Aug 2007) from John Strother see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates: that all but one of the specimens (previously) filed in UC/JEPS as Erigeron ursinus D. C. Eaton belong instead to other taxa; that that one specimen (UC195569, with two plants) includes a plant identified as Erigeron ursinus by Arthur Cronquist, who therefore considered the collection data (Yosemite, CA) to be incorrect; and that Strother thinks that UC195569 includes no plants belonging to Erigeron ursinus, that the plants it does include were probably collected from Yosemite, CA, and that Erigeron ursinus D. C. Eaton was misapplied to plants from California by Jepson in Man Fl. Pl. Calif. and by others.[Therefore, a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-8 is most appropriate at this time.]
