Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 4 Mar 2005 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates two specimens in UC/JEPS, JEPS48349 and UC1044490, assignable to Juniperus scopulorum. [Indicated for Wyoming, Montana, Colorado in International Plant Names Index-Gray Card Index.]
Correspondence 2 12 Oct 2006 e-mail from Robert P. Adams, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author of Juniperus see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to Robert P. Adams, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author of Juniperus, there is only one possible Juniperus scopulorum specimen remaining to be resolved: UC1044490 Mrs. B. N Berry Sept 30, 1955 Modoc Co.
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Robert P. Adams see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that, according to Robert P. Adams, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author of Juniperus, UC1044490 [the "one possible Juniperus scopulorum specimen remaining to be resolved" in Correspondence 2] belongs to Juniperus occidentalis Hook. var. occidentalis, not Juniperus scopulorum Sarg. [The other specimen in UC/JEPS, JEPS48349, seems to have entire lvs at 20 X (characteristic of J. scopulorum), but it was collected by "Miss K. D. Jones" in "Ca. 1914" from "Black Hills" (according to collection label, which also has the pre-printed heading "California"), of which there are two in California in the Jepson Place Name Index, one in e Imperial Co. (20 mi n of Glamis) and the other c Contra Costa Co. (hills, sw of Briones Valley).]
Correspondence 4 23 Jan 2007 e-mail from Robert Adams (Author of Juniperus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]) see Comment 4
Editorial Comments 4 Correspondence 4 indicates that JEPS 48349 does in fact belong to Juniperus scopulorum, but that it probably is from the Black Hills of SD (e.g., the habitats of both California "Black Hills"are improbable for this species), and so it is not correct to say that the species occurs in CA, based on this collection or otherwise.
