Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 7 Jul 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Alan T. Whittemore in Flora North America 3:120--121 (1997) recognizes Ranunculus flammula L. var. flammula and Ranunculus flammula L. var. ovalis as occurring in California but cites the tentative nature of the varietal distinctions, especially among western N. Am. populations
Correspondence 2 7 Jul 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that this combination is based on Ranunculus filiformis var. ovalis published in Florula Bostoniensis ed. 2:224, 1824, written by Jacob Bigelow (Bigelow in Authors of Plant Names), so that the correct author citation is Ranunculus flammula L. var. ovalis (Bigelow) L. D. Benson
Correspondence 3 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Alan T. Whittemore see Comment 3
