Atriplex subspicata (Nutt.) Rydb.

Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Initial Editorial Analysis 8 Apr 2011
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments From Flora North America 4: 323, "The name Atriplex dioica Rafinesque antedates Chenopodium subspicatum Nuttall [the basionym of Atriplex subspicata] by half a year, being published in December 1817. Hence, it is the correct name for the widely ranging species..." [Therefore, the correct name for this species is Atriplex dioica Raf., and Atriplex subspicata (Nutt.) Rydb. is illegitimate, pending review by The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] author.].
