Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Ronald B. Kelley see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 does not address Echium lusitanicum L., suggesting that the author does not consider it to occur in California as either a native or naturalized taxon. [On 4 May 2010 there are no records under this name in CCH, so that a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-8 is most appropriate at this time.]
