Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 Sep 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to International Plant Names Index, Saxifraga rufidula was published by Fedde (= Authors of Plant Names) in Just's botanischer Jahresbericht. 33(1[3]):613 (7 Sep 1906) before the publication by Macoun (Ottawa Naturalist 20(8):162. Nov. 1906), and that Fedde indicated the combination was based on Greene's Micranthes rufidula (North American Flora 22(2):140. 1905). [Therefore, author citation corrected to Saxifraga rufidula (Greene) Fedde, from Saxifraga rufidula (Small) Macoun previously in this Index, 17 Dec 2010.]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Saxifraga rufidula (Small) Fedde is a name that in California has been misapplied to pls belonging instead to Micranthes marshallii (Greene) Small. [Micranthes rufidula was published as a sp. nov. by Small, not Greene, in North American Flora 22(2):140 (1905); the citation of Greene in Correspondence 1 evidently is a lapsus. Therefore, author citation corrected to Saxifraga rufidula (Small) Fedde, from Saxifraga rufidula (Greene) Fedde previously in this Index, 28 Jul 2011.]
