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 var. parishii (Piper) Hitchc., with Festuca californica Vasey subsp. parishii (Piper) Darbysh. indicated as a syn, is to be treated as an unresolved variant, 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.]
