Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 19 Oct 2005 pers. comm. from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 is a reference to S. J. Darbyshire (author of Festuca for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]), Sida 21(3): 1455-1463, 2005, wherein three subspecies are described in Festuca californica, all present in CA: Festuca californica Vasey subsp. californica, Festuca californica Vasey subsp. hitchcockiana (E. B. Alexeev) Darbysh., and Festuca californica Vasey subsp. parishii (Piper) Darbysh..
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Festuca californica Vasey subsp. hitchcockiana (E. B. Alexeev) Darbysh., and therefore also Festuca californica Vasey subsp. californica, are to be treated as unresolved variants, of Festuca californica Vasey, for which the matter of taxonomic recognition or not requires further study, and therefore remains unresolved. [If infraspecific taxa are recognized within Festuca californica Vasey, it is likely that they would all be at the same rank, either subsp. or var.]
