Initial Editorial Comments correct name for Lemna minuscula Herter is Lemna minuta Kunth according to Wilken & Wetherwax, Corrections to The Jepson Manual, with no reason given; author citation of Lemna minima changed in WW from (Hegelm.) Hegelm. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 7 Apr 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates, citing Taxon 39:328--330 (1990), that the situation is very complicated with respect to the correct author citation for Lemna minima, involving a misspelling, one or more invalid publications, illegitimate later homonyms, and possibly misidentified types, although it is apparent that the name by Hegelm., published in 1896, is an illegitimate later homonym for which the full author citation would be Lemna minima Phil. ex Hegelm., illeg. hom.. [Therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym expanded to Lemna minima Phil. ex Hegelm., illeg. hom., from Lemna minima Hegelm. previously in this Index, 29 Apr 2008.]
