Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Steve Boyd see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Crassula colligata Toelken subsp. lamprosperma Toelken is to be treated as naturalized in CA, with the following note, "This taxon is growing in an area of relatively well preserved alluvial fan scrub along the San Gabriel River. Although the geographic extent is relatively limited by surrounding urbanization, the plants are thoroughly naturalized in the area of natural vegetation where it is found, which is largely or entirely protected from further development, is not far from extensive areas of wildlands in the San Gabriel Mountains to the north, and is well connected via the San Gabriel River channel to the Puente Hills to the south. These plants can spread in both urban and wildland situations and is not a waif, but rather a permanent part of our flora now."
