Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis 24 Mar 2011
Source of Report for California Kartesz & Meacham
Initial Editorial Comments Descurainia incisa (Engelm.) Britton listed as synonym of in Kartesz & Meacham; evidently treated as Descurainia incisa (Engelm. ex A. Gray) Britton subsp. incisa in The Cruciferae of Continental North America, Reed C. Rollins, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; see comments under Descurainia incana.
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 21 Oct 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that for the basionym, Sisymbrium incisum Engelm. in A. Gray, Memoirs of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences ser. 2, 4:8 (1849), Gray (1849) ascribed the name to "Engelm. Mss." and quoted Engelmann's Latin diagnosis. [Therefore, author of the basionym is Engelm., as indicated previously in this Index, and not Engelm. ex A. Gray, as indicated in The Cruciferae of Continental North America, Reed C. Rollins, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1].]
