Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 22 Dec 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that the genus name Hutchinsia W.T. Aiton (Hortus Kewensis, ed. 2, 4:82--83. 1812) is illegitimate; that Aiton included Iberis rotundifolia, the type of the earlier legitimate genus name, Noccaea Moench (Supplementum ad Methodum Plantas a Staminum situ Describendi 89. 1802); that although Hutchinsia procumbens (L.) Desv. is illegitimate, Art. 55.1 states that "A name of a species or subdivision of a genus may be legitimate even if its epithet was originally placed under an illegitimate generic name", meaning that the epithet "procumbens" may be used in another combination, under another genus; and that according to Ihsan Al-Shehbaz (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] author for Brassicaceae) the name Hornungia procumbens (L.) Hayek should be used for this taxon.
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes [including Al-Shehbaz e-mail of 31 Mar 2011, archived in Eudora mailbox "done ICPN".] submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Hornungia procumbens (L.) Hayek is to be treated as naturalized in CA, that it was introduced to North America possibly in the early 19th century, and that it is native to Eurasia. [As Hutchinsia procumbens (L.) Desv., it was treated as native to California in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (p. 425).]
