Correspondence 1 6 Feb 2014 e-mail from Dieter Wilken see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 includes reference to a paper (Quintanar & Castroviejo. 2013. Syst. Bot. 38: 1029-1061) in which the authors conclude that Koeleria macrantha (Ledeb.) Schult. (1824), based on Aira macrantha Ledeb. (1815), and Koeleria pyramidata (Lam.) P. Beauv. (1812), based on Poa pyramidata Lam. (1791), are the same species, for which the earlier epithet at the rank of species is pyramidata, so that [according to Art. 11.4 of ICBN, Melbourne Code] the correct name is Koeleria pyramidata (Lam.) P. Beauv. [with therefore as synonyms Aira macrantha Ledeb., Koeleria macrantha (Ledeb.) Schult, and Poa pyramidata Lam.], a species in which Koeleria pyramidata (Lam.) P. Beauv. subsp. pyramidata is recognized for plants in temperate parts of Eurasia and North America including CA.
Pending data Koeleria pyramidata (Lam.) P. Beauv. may become the accepted name for Koeleria macrantha (Ledeb.) Schult., and within the species Koeleria pyramidata (Lam.) P. Beauv. subsp. pyramidata may be recognized for plants in CA
