Initial Editorial Comments author citation uncertain, (Douglas ex Hook.) J. W. Grimes in Kartesz & Meacham, International Plant Names Index-Index Kewensis, (Douglas) J. W. Grimes in IPNI-Gray Card Index; probably (Douglas ex Hook.) J. W. Grimes, abbreviated to (Hook.) J. W. Grimes, is correct, in which case Psoralea physodes Douglas would be incorrect and therefore would be deleted from The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonyms.
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 6 Apr 2006 e-mail from Jeffrey A. Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Rupertia physodes was published by James W. Grimes (J. W. Grimes in Authors of Plant Names) in Memoirs of the New York Botanical Garden 61: 53. 1990, and that the basionym, Psoralea physodes, was published in Hooker, Flora Boreali-Americana 1(3): 136. 1831, wherein Hooker ascribed the name to Douglas [Douglas in Authors of Plant Names] in the index and quoted the Latin description from "Douglas, MSS. in Herb. Hort. Soc.", [so that Douglas is to be cited as the author of Psoralea physodes]. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Rupertia physodes (Douglas) J. W. Grimes, from Rupertia physodes (Hook.) J. W. Grimes previously in this Index, 6 Apr 2006.]
