Initial Editorial Comments family mistakenly omitted from The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], but treated as addendum to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] in The Jepson Globe 1993, 5(1):2; native in NA according to Kartesz & Meacham; "Probably introduced in California as orn.", Impatiens occidentalis Rydb. listed as syn, in treatment of family as addendum to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] in The Jepson Globe 1993, 5(1):2; according to Source c, in California naturalized outside of wildlands, yet occurrences evidently qualify for inclusion in the flora according to criteria employed by Jepson Flora Project (11 Feb 2003).
