Names and Taxonomy

Taxonomy

Comments: Kartesz (1999) recognizes this taxon and Epilobium canum subsp. angustifolium (sensu lato), as does Junak et al. (1995); Munz (1974) had a similar circumscription. (In Munz [1959] and Abrams [1951] three taxa were recognized, so their treatment of "ssp. angustifolia Keck" is sensu stricto.) All these treatments consider "canum" narrowly.

In Hickman (1993), P.C. Hoch treats Epilobium canum subsp. canum broadly, recognizing one entity instead of both of the above subspecies, and seeming to use Munz (1974) as a base for synonymy (so Hoch's synonym "Z. californica ssp. californica" is sensu lato, including "ssp. angustifolia"). Smith (1998) attempts to deal with this situation by characterizing both taxa, but with different type faces, which could imply that the latter taxon is a variant within the former.
