Information from the Index of California Plant Names (ICPN)
Current Jepson Flora Project Synonyms Viola pinetorum Greene var. grisea (Jeps.) R. J. Little; Viola purpurea Kellogg subsp. xerophyta M.S. Baker & J.C. Clausen, in part; Viola purpurea Kellogg var. grisea Jeps. [A search of International Plant Names Index revealed no Viola pinetorum var. grisea Jeps., and there is no other information suggesting it has ever been published (although Viola purpurea Kellogg var. grisea Jeps. has been published and in fact serves as the basionym for the new combination, Viola pinetorum Greene var. grisea (Jeps.) R. J. Little), so that Viola pinetorum var. grisea Jeps. was removed from this list of "Current Jepson Flora Project synonyms" on 31 Jan 2012.]
