Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 confirms that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Phlox caespitosa Nutt. is to be recognized and treated as native to CA.
Correspondence 2 17 Jun 2011 e-mail from Carolyn Ferguson, one of three authors of Phlox for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that the authors of Phlox for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] have reversed their decision to include Phlox douglasii Hook. in Phlox caespitosa Nutt., under the latter name, and instead now treat them as separate species, the latter thereby excluded from CA. [Phlox douglasii Hook. subsp. rigida (Benth.) Wherry (and therefore also its basionym, Phlox rigida Benth.) previously treated in this index as a synonym of Phlox caespitosa Nutt., now is treated as a synonym of Phlox douglasii Hook..]
