Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 26 Jun 2007 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the following names are used in SMASCH but do not have main entries in ICPN: Trifolium variegatum var. major; Trifolium variegatum var. melananthum; Trifolium variegatum var. pauciflorum; Trifolium variegatum var. rostratum; Trifolium variegatum var. variegatum. [Treated as synonym of Trifolium variegatum, essentially of phase 1, in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (p.653), with the comment "Gen considered "typical" T. variegatum" (that Trifolium variegatum Nutt. var. variegatum is treated as a synonym of Trifolium variegatum Nutt. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] is indicated by the fact that no formally named infraspecific taxa are recognized in the species in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]; whether or not it is considered to be a synonym of "phase 1" is uncertain in part due to the use of quotation marks around the word "typical").]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Michael A. Vincent see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Trifolium variegatum Nutt. var. variegatum is to be recognized and treated as native to CA, with Trifolium appendiculatum Lojac. var. rostratum (Greene) Jeps., among others, listed as synonym [Correspondence 2 does not address Trifolium variegatum Nutt. phase 1, but it does list Trifolium appendiculatum Lojacono var. rostratum (Greene) Jeps. (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] "synonym" of Trifolium variegatum Nutt. phase 1] as a synonym of Trifolium variegatum Nutt. var. variegatum, and in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] it was said to be "gen considered 'typical' T. variegatum", so that it is reasonable to consider Trifolium variegatum Nutt. phase 1 as a "synonym" of Trifolium variegatum Nutt. var. variegatum.]
