Brandegee, 7 May 1913, UC Botanical Garden), UC297944 (collector, location not given; a photograph possibly of type specimen formerly of British Museum); in no way mentioned in Munz, Munz Supplement, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], Kartesz & Meacham; indicated for Chile in International Plant Names Index-Index Kewensis
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 $ 17 Dec 2001, from Margriet Wetherwax see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that there are no California records in the literature and no records in California herbaria of Oenothera odorata Jacq. other than those reported under Comments [evidently, only from UC Botanical Garden], so that there appears to be no evidence that Oenothera odorata Jacq. is naturalized or even occurs outside of cultivation in CA.
