Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 23 Jun 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Guy Nesom (Flora North America and The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author) is now treating Gnaphalium purpureum L. as Gamochaeta purpurea (L.) Cabrera (Bol. Soc. Argent. Bot. 9:377. 1961).
Correspondence 2 14 Jul 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Gamochaeta purpurea [Gnaphalium purpureum in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]] is [recognized but not indicated for California in treatment of Gamochaeta in Flora North America, authored by Guy Nesom, who also is author for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]].
Correspondence 3 19 Sep 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that, in his 1990 paper (Phytologia 68:195), [Nesom] included California and OR as a disjunct part of the range of Gamochaeta purpurea and listed some differences [presumably, between pls in California and Gamochaeta purpurea], stating that "These [presumably, pls in CA] ultimately may be found to have a different name or be undescribed, but their similarity to typical Gamochaeta purpurea is too great to add yet another new name without a more detailed study." Correspondence 3 also indicates that presumably he [Nesom] has now concluded that they [pls in CA] don't belong to Gamochaeta purpurea, and that it is not yet clear how he [Nesom] is treating them.
