Correspondence 1 30 Oct 2008 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Psorothamnus polydenius was published by Rydberg [Rydb. in Authors of Plant Names] in North American Flora 24(1):46 (1919), based on Dalea polydenia published by S. Watson in United States Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. Botany 64, pl. 9 (1871), wherein Watson ascribed the name to "Torr. MSS." [Torr. in Authors of Plant Names] and quoted Torrey's description. [Therefore, author citation corrected to Psorothamnus polydenius (Torr.) Rydb., from Psorothamnus polydenius (S. Watson) Rydb. previously in this Index, and author citation of The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] synonym corrected to Dalea polydenia Torr., from Dalea polydenia S. Watson previously in this Index, 2 Dec 2008 and 31 Jul 2009, respectively.]
