The list is given in alphabetical order by old name so that the table can be more easily used as a reference in updating older names. We will eventually compile all of these changes into a single table, since the Jepson Manual does not list names used in A Flora of Southern California by Philip A. Munz. (The Jepson Manual does list the names in his A California Flora.)

In addition, whenever the species name as given in the Jepson Manual contains the subspecies name as well, we have added that subspecies name in the flora.

Native / Non-Native Designation Corrections

We corrected the following species to properly indicate their status:

Eclipta prostrata*Eclipta prostrata
Sagina apetala*Sagina apetala
*Eucalyptus sp.Eucalyptus sp.
Gilia tricolor*Gilia tricolor
Galium aparine*Galium aparine
*Agave americanaAgave americana
