Hi Gordon,

I was notified by Tim Hogan at COLO that my collection 1603 of Lithospermum incisum was incorrectly identified on the label as Mertensia lanceolata.  My records show that I sent you a duplicate of this collection.  You might want to check it. I have attached a replacement label.

Best regards,

Tom

Hi Tim,

Well, that's weird. My field notebook says Lithospermum incisum. I typed in Lithospermum incisum when I copied my field notebook into my data base. The only thing I can come up with is that I confused my handwritten number 1603 with 1608 which is Mertensia lanceolata.  Weak excuse, though.

I have attached a replacement label, or if you prefer, please annotate as Lithospermum incisum.

Thank you for checking my collections and letting me know of the discrepancy.

Best regards,

Tom
