Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 6 Nov 2008 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to TROPICOS, the spelling of the varietal epithet and author citation are Cleomella plocasperma var. mohavensis (Payson) Crum ex Jeps., A Flora of California 2(1): 14. 1936, based on Cleomella mojavensis Payson.
Correspondence 2 6 Nov 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Cleomella plocasperma var. mojavensis was published by Jepson [Jeps. in Authors of Plant Names] in A Flora of California 2(1):14 (1936), wherein he introduced the orthographic variant "mohavensis", ascribed the name to "Crum" but gave no indication that she contributed to the authorship of the actual publication, and indicated Cleomella mojavensis [as "mohavensis"] Payson (University of Wyoming Publications in Science. Botany 1:36. 1922) as the basionym. [Therefore, spelling of varietal epithet and author citation corrected to Cleomella plocasperma S. Watson var. mojavensis (Payson) Crum ex Jeps., from Cleomella plocasperma S. Watson var. mohavensis Crum previously in this Index, 6 Nov 2008.]
