Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 8 Jan 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Descurainia richardsonii (Sweet) O.E. Schulz (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym) is illegitimate, as explained in a note in International Plant Names Index that states, "Schulz intended D. richardsonii to be a comb. nov. based on Sisymbrium richardsonii Sweet 1830 (invalid); he referred to S. incanum, among others, as a synonym."[Therefore, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Descurainia richardsonii (Sweet) O. E. Schulz illeg., from Descurainia richardsonii (Sweet) O. E. Schulz previously in this Index, 8 Jan 2009.]
