Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 6 Jun 2007 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that there are in UC/JEPS 2 specimens (collected in 1960, 1961) from 2 locations in Del Norte Co. that are filed as Symphyotrichum laeve (L.) Á. Löve & D. Löve var. geyeri (A. Gray) G. L. Nesom. [In Flora North America, in a treatment authored by Luc Brouillet, John C. Semple, Geraldine A. Allen (author of Symphyotrichum for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]), Kenton L. Chambers, and Scott D. Sundberg, it is stated, "...The species was recently reported for California (tentatively assigned to this variety), where possibly it has been introduced." Therefore, a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-1, Jepson Flora Project-2, or Jepson Flora Project-3 seem equally possible at this time, since it is uncertain whether or not the plants are native to CA, and if they are not, whether they occur in the state as naturalized plants or as waifs.]Summary: possible addition, for taxon reported for California since The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Symphyotrichum laeve (L.) Á. Löve & D. Löve var. geyeri (A. Gray) G. L. Nesom is to be treated as a name that in California has been misapplied to plants belonging instead to Symphyotrichum subspicatum (Nees) G.L. Nesom, with a note under the genus stating "Reported records of Symphyotrichum laeve (L.) G.L. Nesom var. geyeri (A. Gray) G.L. Nesom from Del Norte Co. are Symphyotrichum subspicatum (Nees) G.L. Nesom".
