Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 May 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Polygonum polygaloides subsp. confertiflorum was published by J. C. Hickman (= Authors of Plant Names), in Madrono 31:251 (1984), based on Polygonum confertiflorum, published by Charles V. Piper (Piper in Authors of Plant Names) in Contributions from the United States National Herbarium 11:228 (1906), wherein Piper ascribed the name to "Nutt. in herb." [Therefore, author citation expanded to Polygonum polygaloides Meisn. subsp. confertiflorum (Nutt. ex Piper) J. C. Hickman, from Polygonum polygaloides Meisn. subsp. confertiflorum (Piper) J. C. Hickman previously in this Index, 12 Jun 2006.]
