Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 May 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Job Kuijt, in Monograph of Phoradendron (Viscaceae), Systematic Botany Monographs 66:120-125 (2003), includes Phoradendron densum and Phoradendron pauciflorum within a broadly circumscribed and variable species Phoradendron bolleanum, with no infraspecific taxa recognized, although Delbert Wiens and Frank Hawksworth (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] Co-Authors), in Aliso 21:34-36 (2002), had earlier reiterated their taxonomic treatment in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (in which the two are treated as distinct species).
Correspondence 2 31 Jan 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Phoradendron densum was published by William Trelease (Trel. in Authors of Plant Names) in The Genus Phoradendron 27--28 (1916), wherein Trelease ascribed the name to "Torrey in herb." (Torr. in Authors of Plant Names) but supplied his own description. [Therefore, author citation expanded to Phoradendron densum Torr. ex Trel., from Phoradendron densum Trel. previously in this Index, 2 Feb 2006.]
Correspondence 3 Treatment submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Job Kuijt see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Phoradendron densum Trel. is to be treated as a synonym of Phoradendron bolleanum.
