Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 [for Brassica geniculata (Desf.) Benth. as a The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym of Hirschfeldia incana (L.) Lagr.-Fossat] 12 Jan 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Brassica geniculata was published by George Bentham (Benth. in Authors of Plant Names) in Flora Australiensis 1:65 (1863), 15 years before Ball's superfluous publication in Journal of the Linnean Society, Botany 16:327 (1878), and that the basionym is Sinapis geniculata, published by René Desfontaines (Desf. in Authors of Plant Names) in Flora Atlantica 2:98 (1798). [Therefore, author citation corrected to Brassica geniculata (Desf.) Benth., from Brassica geniculata (Desf.) Ball previously in this Index, 13 Jan 2009 (see Hirschfeldia incana (L.) Lagr.-Fossat).]
