Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 $ 15 May 2002 e-mail from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Cardaria chalepensis now treated as Lepidium draba L. subsp. chalapense (L.) Thell., and that Cardaria draba now treated as Lepidium draba L. subsp. draba by Al-Shehbaz et al. [So that an entry for the species must also be added.]
Correspondence 2 7 Jul 2008 e-mail from Bruce G. Baldwin, including forwarded e-mail from Tom Cochrane see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that according to Tom Cochrane, Cardaria draba (L.) Desv. (and Lepidium draba var. draba) are mistakenly indicated as native "on the online Jepson", citing the fact the taxon is listed as a noxious introduction from Eurasia on the CDFA site and the IPC site; according to Baldwin, both var. draba and var. chalepensis are introduced and noxious. [Cardaria draba (L.) Desv. indicated as alien in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], so source of error uncertain.]
