Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 1 Mar 2007 e-mail from David J. Keil, including comments on numerous genera to be submitted by Keil for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to David J. Keil (Family Editor for Asteraceae in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]) Deb Trock will be treating Pericallis as a genus distinct from Senecio, and that Ted Barkley (Sida 18:666. 1999; Flora North America 20:607) indicated that the correct name for the escaped cultivar in California is P. hybrida (Regel) B. Nord. and that P. cruenta (L'Her.) Bolle ((=Senecio cruentus (L'Her.) DC.)) has been misapplied to this plant.
Correspondence 2 28 Oct 2007 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 includes an inquiry as to the author citation, suggesting replacement of "Berth." with "Berthel.". [Author citation is "Webb & Berthel." according to International Plant Names Index-Index Kewensis, and the only name in Authors of Plant Names beginning with "Berthel" is Sabin Berthelot (1794-1880; Berthel. in AP). Therefore, author citation corrected to Pericallis cruenta (DC.) Webb & Berthel., from Pericallis cruenta (DC.) Webb & Berth. previously in this Index, 29 Oct 2007.]
