Initial Editorial Comments 37 records in SMASCH, collected 1899-1990, from many cos. in n CA; author citation uncertain, Festuca roemeri (Pavlick) E. B. Alexeev in International Plant Names Index-Gray Card Index, IPNI-Index Kewensis, even though this author died in 1976 according Authors of Plant Names (the only Alexeev in Authors of Plant Names extant in 1985 evidently would be A. G. Alexeev); indicated for California to BC in Kartesz & Meacham
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 8 Sep 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the author of the 1985 protologue is given therein as E. B. Alexeev, and that a search in International Plant Names Index for names published by E. B. Alexeev reveals many other Festucas published in various journals in the 1980's, so that either the date for the author's death in Authors of Plant Names is wrong or there are two different E. B. Alexeevs. [Since the former seems more likely, the author citation retained as is until evidence to the contrary is presented.]
Correspondence 2 1 Oct 2007 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that the dates for E. B. Alexeev (the publishing author of Festuca roemeri) in the printed Authors of Plant Names (1946--1976) have been corrected online in the International Plant Names Index authors database and the HUH Index of Botanists to 1946--1987, confirming that E. B. Alexeev is the correct author abbreviation. [Therefore, author citation corrected as indicated in this Index, 8 Oct 2007.]
