Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Michael Nee see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Petunia axillaris (Lam.) Britton, Sterns & Poggenb. is not to be treated, with no specific reasons indicated. [There is 1 record in CCH (SD155391; Carrie Schneider, 65, Jun 20, 2004), which appears to have been collected from conditions that would qualify for inclusion in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], but it is not clear whether or not the pls were reproducing in any way, so a Current Status of tentative 3 seems most appropriate at this time.]
