Jepson Flora Project: Jepson Interchange for California Floristics    
Myosotis sylvatica Ehrh. ex Hoffm.
Initial Editorial Analysis 11 Feb 2013
Source of Report for California Munz, P.A. in collaboration with D. D. Keck. 1968, as cited in Kartesz & Meacham
Initial Editorial Comments treated in full in Munz, as a "garden plant, escaping in moist shaded places near the coast from San Mateo Co. n.; native of Eurasia"; in no way mentioned in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 15 Jun 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the Authors of Plant Names abbreviation for Hoffmann in the Myosotis sylvatica citation is Hoffm. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Myosotis sylvatica Ehrh. ex Hoffm., from Myosotis sylvatica Ehrh. ex Hoffmann previously in this Index, 21 Jun 2007.]
Correspondence 2 8 Feb 2013 e-mail from Barbara Ertter see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 includes a reference to Munz Supplement (p. 92), in which "M. latifolia Poir., not M. sylvatica (cf. Johnston, Wrightia 2:16-17. 1959)" is stated. [In fact, Myosotis sylvatica Ehrh. ex Hoffm. is listed as a Current Jepson Flora Project Misapplied name under Myosotis latifolia Poir. in this Index. Therefore, Myosotis sylvatica Ehrh. ex Hoffm. is to be treated as a name that in California has been misapplied to plants belonging instead to Myosotis latifolia Poir., so that a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-8 is appropriate.]
