Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 20 Oct 2008 e-mail from Steven R. Hill see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that M. F. Ray was incorrect in publishing Malva dendromorpha M. F. Ray for what had been treated as Lavatera arborea L. in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]: since there in fact was no Malva arborea St.Hil., Fl. Bras. Mer. I: 215, t. 135, f.4 1827, there was no prior homonym, so that Malva arborea (L.) Webb. & Berthel. is not a later homonym, and therefore is the correct name for this taxon in the genus Malva, and Malva dendromorpha M. F. Ray is rendered superfluous.
Correspondence 2 14 Jan 2009 e-mail from Adam Searcy, UC Santa Cruz see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that, according to The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (and other sources), this taxon is native to Europe and has been naturalized in CA. [Therefore, Current Status corrected to Jepson Flora Project-2, from Jepson Flora Project-1 previously in this Index, 17 Jan 2009.]
Correspondence 3 11 Aug 2009 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 3
Editorial Comments 3 Correspondence 3 indicates, without supporting documentation, that author citation should be "Webb & Berthel.". [Therefore, author citation corrected to Malva arborea (L.) Webb & Berthel., from Malva arborea (L.) Webb. & Berthel. previously in this Index, 20 Aug 2009.]
Correspondence 4 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Steven R. Hill see Comment 4
Editorial Comments 4 Correspondence 3 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Lavatera arborea L. is to be treated as a synonym of Malva arborea (L.) Webb. & Berthel..
