Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 16 Jun 2009 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that the combination Opuntia littoralis was published by T.D.A. Cockerell (Cockerell in Authors of Plant Names) in Bulletin of the Southern California Academy of Sciences 4(1):15 (1905), and that Cockerell provided an indirect (albeit satisfactory at the time) indication of the basionym, Opuntia engelmannii var. littoralis Engelm.. [Therefore, author citation correct as indicated in this Index, 21 Dec 2010.]
