Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 11 Mar 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, according to Marc Baker (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] co-author for Opuntia), there now is wide acceptance of Cylindropuntia for the "true chollas", so that Cylindropuntia echinocarpa (Engelm. & J. M. Bigelow) F. M. Knuth (in C. Backeberg & F. M. Knuth, Kaktus-ABC 124. 1935) is to be used for the taxon treated in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] as Opuntia echinocarpa.
Correspondence 2 22 Dec 2008 e-mail from Bruce D. Parfitt, The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Author see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2], Opuntia echinocarpa Engelm. & J. M. Bigelow is indeed to be treated as Cylindropuntia echinocarpa (Engelm. & J. M. Bigelow) F. M. Knuth.
