Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Oct 2004 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Salicornia depressa is among names returned in a search of Flora North America for taxa reported for California currently not found in this Index. [Salicornia depressa Standl. recognized and indicated for California in Flora North America treatment by Peter W. Ball (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author), in which it is stated, "This species has generally been called Salicornia europaea by North American authors, but that name refers to a diploid European species that does not occur in North America. The earliest name that is probably referable to this species is Salicornia virginica Linnaeus, which must be typified by specimens collected by John Clayton probably from Virginia. The specimens are sterile but clearly annual, as indicated by Linnaeus in the protologue. The name was applied to an annual species by P. C. Standley (1916), but subsequently came to be misapplied to the perennial species of the east coast now treated in Sarcocornia."]
