Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 10 Oct 2006 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Eriogonum ovalifolium var. purpureum (Nutt.) Durand (Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, new series, 11:175. 1860) was based on Eucycla purpurea Nutt. (Proceedings of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia 4:17. 1848), published when Aven Nelson was 1 year old. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Eriogonum ovalifolium Nutt. var. purpureum (Nutt.) Durand, from Eriogonum ovalifolium Nutt. var. purpureum (A. Nelson) Durand previously in this Index, 13 Oct 2006.]
