Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 1 Dec 2004 e-mail from Misa Ward see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence appended verbatim is pertinent to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] account: "Move to List 1B? Location and rarity information needed, especially quads for LAX, MNO, and SMT counties, and SRO Isl. Does plant occur in FRE Co.? Most mainland occurrences have been extirpated by development; others are threatened. Previously confused with H. pusillum. See Nordic Journal of Botany 2:307-321 (1982) for taxonomic treatment."
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates, under Hordeum intercedens Nevski, which is said to be native, that Hordeum intercedens Nevski is sometimes treated as a synonym of Hordeum pusillum Nutt., and that Hordeum pusillum Nutt. has been reported from California but is not naturalized, and that the situation needs study. [Although the statement "has been reported from California but is not naturalized" suggests the possibility that Hordeum pusillum Nutt. occurs in California as a waif, the Current Status of that name was not addressed, and so remains tentative. The fact that Hordeum intercedens Nevski could be native as well as a potential synonym of Hordeum pusillum Nutt, which evidently is not, is not addressed in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2].]
