Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Jun 2000 pers. comm. from Alan R. Smith see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates naturalization in California questionable, if not doubtful.
Correspondence 2 9 Jun 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Alan Smith, in a 2 Apr 2004 e-mail [to Greenhouse], states that the G. Leppig 1290 specimen (referred to in Source c; UC1776736 is a duplicate) from Humboldt Co. "may be naturalized" [as pointed out by Greenhouse, a possibility supported by the associates listed on the label, Athyrium filix-femina, Lysichiton americanum, and Polystichum munitum], and that this species " certainly naturalized in UCBG, and I would expect it to become naturalized in other places in the state too....Probably it should be included in the Jepson Manual." [Greenhouse also points out in Correspondence 2 that the Hrusa et al. Sonoma Co. reference given in Source c is to a 1965 Walter Knight collection said to be naturalized from Griffith Woods in se. Vine Hill District.]
