Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 30 Jul 2003 e-mail from Dan Post see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates author difference in Flora North America, which has Carex pachystachya Chamisso ex Steudel, Synonym Pl. Glumac. 2: 197. 1855 [therefore, author citation needs to be checked]
Correspondence 2 9 Jan 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Carex pachystachya was published by E.G. Steudel (Steud. in Authors of Plant Names) in Synopsis Plantarum Glumacearum 2: 197 (1855), and that Steudel ascribed the name to "Chamiss." (Cham. in Authors of Plant Names) but provided his own description. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Carex pachystachya Cham. ex Steud., from Carex pachystachya Cham. previously in this Index, 9 Jan 2008.]
