Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Jun 2006 Interchange Feedback from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, as treated in PLANTS (, Glandularia pulchella and Verbena pulchella are synonyms of Verbena tenuisecta, already in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] as a Jepson Flora Project-2.
Correspondence 2 13 Jun 2006 Interchange Feedback from Richard Moe see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to PLANTS, Glandularia pulchella (Sweet) Tronc. is the accepted name, with Verbena tenuisecta Briq. (1904) a taxonomic synonym, and that if, for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], these two names were considered to represent the same taxon, and that taxon were treated as belonging to Verbena, then the accepted name for the taxon would be Verbena pulchella Sweet [publication date not given in International Plant Names Index; Sweet's dates are 1783-1835], since that name has priority [presumably, given the dates involved] over Verbena tenuisecta. Correspondence 2 also indicates that the Kartesz & Meacham report of Glandularia pulchella presumably refers to the The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] report of Verbena tenuisecta [in Kartesz & Meacham, in fact, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] is cited as the source of the report of Glandularia pulchella for CA, and Verbena tenuisecta is listed as a synonym of Glandularia pulchella]. [Pending receipt and review of treatment for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], it is appropriate to assign a Current Status of tentative 2a at this time.]
