Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 23 Sep 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the author citation for Mentzelia hirsutissima var. stenophylla (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym of Mentzelia hirsutissima) is (Urb. & Gilg) I. M. Johnst.; Urb. is the Authors of Plant Names abbreviation for Ignatz Urban (1848-1931), who was alive when the basionym, Mentzelia stenophylla Urb. & Gilg, was published (Nova Acta Acad. Caes. Leop.-Carol. German. Nat. Cur. 76: 80. 1900), and not for Lowell Urbatsch (1942- ), who was not yet born at the time. [The standard for author abbreviations in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] was the Draft Index of Author Abbreviations, in which Urb. was the abbreviation for Lowell Urbatsch; thus, the author citation in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1], Mentzelia hirsutissima var. stenophylla (Urb. & Gilg) I. M. Johnst., is incorrect; therefore, author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Mentzelia hirsutissima var. stenophylla (Urb. & Gilg) I. M. Johnst., from Mentzelia hirsutissima var. stenophylla (Urbatsch & Gilg) I. M. Johnst. previously in this Index, 23 Sep 2004.]
