Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 14 May 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that A. Cunningham (Ann. Nat. Hist., 4:106, Oct. 1839) ascribed both the name and Latin diagnosis to "Banks & Sol. Ms.", so that the author citation is "Banks & Sol." [Author citation corrected to Pittosporum crassifolium Banks & Sol., from Pittosporum crassifolium A. Cunn. originally in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] and this Index, 2 Jun 2003, although identities of authors uncertain.]
Correspondence 2 23 Dec 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that the author citation for Pittosporum crassifolium, Banks & Sol. [as indicated in this Index], refers to Sir Joseph Banks (Banks in Authors of Plant Names), collector of the type, and Daniel Solander (Sol. in Authors of Plant Names) who accompanied Banks on that collecting expedition (Capt. Cook's first voyage) and was co-author with Banks of Ill. Austral. pl. Cook's voy., which was based on their collections. [Therefore, author citation correct as indicated in this Index.]
