Juncus brachyphyllus Wiegand

Initial Editorial Analysis 18 Oct 2016 [but should have been made earlier, as the change was made in the eFlora as part of Revision 3, Dec 2015]
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 15 Jan 2013 e-mail from Bruce Baldwin, including forward e-mail from Peter Zika, author of Juncus in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 includes citation of a paper by Zika (Rhodora 114(959): 309-329. 2012) in which a new species, Juncus trilocularis Zika, is described for plants occurring from Idaho to California that were previously referred to Juncus brachyphyllus, which as recircumscribed refers only to plants in the eastern US; Juncus trilocularis Zika is said to putatively hybridize, rarely, with Juncus confusus and Juncus occidentalis.
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted since The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Juncus trilocularis Zika is to be recognized and treated as native to CA, and that Juncus brachyphyllus Wiegand is excluded from California as a result of the new circumscription.
