Correspondence 1 23 Apr 2003 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that, based on DNA studies, Wendy Zomlefer and Walter Judd (Novon 12:299--308. 2002) have resurrected the genus Toxicoscordion for the species of Zigadenus occurring in CA, so that Toxicoscordion venenosum (S. Watson) Rydb. would be used for this taxon [if this taxonomy is adopted by the Jepson Flora Project author; treated as Zigadenus venenosus S. Watson and Zigadenus venenosus S. Watson var. venenosus in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1]].
Correspondence 2 Treatment and author notes submitted for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] by Dale W. McNeal Jr. & Wendy B. Zomlefer see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Zigadenus venenosus S. Watson and Zigadenus venenosus S. Watson var. venenosus are to be treated as synonyms of Toxicoscordion venenosum (S. Watson) Rydb. and Toxicoscordion venenosum (S. Watson) Rydb. var. venenosum, respectively.
