Plagiobothrys myosotoides (Lehm.) Brand
Initial Editorial Analysis 17 May 2010
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 1 Dec 2004 e-mail from Misa Ward see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence appended verbatim is pertinent to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] account: "Identification uncertain. Relationship to P. torreyi complex needs study. More SA specimens needed for comparison with California material."
Correspondence 2 14 May 2010 e-mail from David Gowen see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that the combination Plagiobothrys myosotoides (Lehm.) Brand subsp. verrucosus (Phil.) N. Horn evidently is ined., because it was made by N. Horn in a PhD dissertation in 2000, because the most recent version of ICBN [Vienna Code] includes an example (Art. 30.5, Example 10) like this that does not meet the requirements of effective publication, because a search revealed no other possible places of publication, and because it is not listed in International Plant Names Index or TROPICOS.
Correspondence 3 17 May 2010 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates that a check of WorldCat revealed that the dissertation by Horn (see Correspondence 2) has not been distributed to libraries at institutions other than its own, that it is available only online, and that it contains no indication of an intent to publish in printed form [and presumably it contains no indication of an intent to publish effectively under the Code], so that it is appropriate to consider it ined. [Therefore, this taxon will have to be treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] under the only name available for it in Plagiobothrys, Plagiobothrys verrucosus (Phil.) I.M. Johnst.. Since Plagiobothrys myosotoides (Lehm.) Brand is not otherwise treated in the treatment for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], it is assumed to be excluded by recircumscription since The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1].]
