Initial Editorial Analysis Nov 1 2001
Source of Report for California The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]
Initial Editorial Comments author citation uncertain, R. Br. ex Fresen. in Kartesz & Meacham, International Plant Names Index-APNI, IPNI-Gray Card Index, but also R. Br. in IPNI-Index Kewensis, and Hort. ex Vilm. in IPNI-Index Kewensis
Editorial Recommendation author citation to be checked [resolved]
Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 2 Mar 2010 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates: that Pennisetum villosum was published by George Fresenius (Fresen. in Authors of Plant Names) in Museum Senckenbergianum 2:134 (1837); that the name was ascribed to "R. Brown in Salt. App.", referring to Appendix IV of H. Salt, A Voyage to Abyssinia (1816); and that the name appears as a new species in a list of plants provided by "Mr. Brown" (R. Br. in Authors of Plant Names) but no description is included in the work. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Pennisetum villosum R. Br. ex Fresen., from Pennisetum villosum R. Br. previously in this Index, 16 Dec 2010.]
