Source of Report for California Kartesz & Meacham
Initial Editorial Comments orthographic variant of Ciclospermum leptophyllum, but Kartesz & Meacham do not even cross-reference to Ciclospermum; neither treated in Munz; author citation uncertain, (Pers.) Britton & P. Wilson according to K, and in SMASCH
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 23 Feb 2004 Interchange Feedback from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Cyclospermum Lagasca 1821 has been conserved, citing Index Nominum Genericorum online, so that Ciclospermum Lagasca 1821 is to be treated as rejected orthographic variant.
Correspondence 2 4 May 2005 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that Cyclospermum leptophyllum was published by N.L. Britton and Percy Wilson (Britton & P. Wilson in Authors of Plant Names) in Scientific Survey of Porto Rico and the Virgin Islands 6: 52. 1925, wherein they ascribed the name to "Sprague, Journ. Bot. 61:131. 1923", although Sprague didn't accept the name, considering it a synonym of Apium leptophyllum (Pers.) F. Muell. ex Benth. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Cyclospermum leptophyllum (Pers.) Sprague ex Britton & P. Wilson, from Cyclospermum leptophyllum (Pers.) Sprague ex Britt. & Wilson previously in this Index, 9 May 2005.]
