Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Jun 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Dodecatheon pulchellum subsp. monanthum is probably ined.: Greene's publication of Dodecatheon pauciflorum var. monanthum (Pittonia 2:73. 1890) was provisional and therefore not valid; Dodecatheon pauciflorum subsp. monanthum was validly published by R. Knuth (Pflanzenreich, 4(237):243. 1905) [who evidently attributed the name to Greene, yielding Greene ex R. Knuth]; H. J. Thompson validly published Dodecatheon radicatum subsp. monanthum (Contrib. from the Dudley Herbarium 4:146. 1953), based on Knuth's name; and Munz (Aliso 4:96. 1958) proposed the comb. nov. Dodecatheon pulchellum subsp. monanthum, citing Thompson [hence, H. J. Thomps. ex Munz] but failing to provide the [full and] direct reference to the basionym of Kunth [which was required on or after 1 January 1958 by ICBN Art. 33.3]. [Therefore, Dodecatheon pulchellum (Raf.) Merr. subsp. monanthum (Greene ex R. Knuth) H. J. Thomps. ex Munz is ined. unless the combination was or has been validly published since the invalid publication in Aliso by Munz.]
