Notes: Online Jepson Manual: "Correspondence 1 indicates that rejection of Gaura mollis James in favor of Gaura parviflora Dougl. ex Lehm. is recommended. [Action based on fact Gaura mollis remained in complete obscurity for nearly all of its existence, and that it would displace a name that has long and consistently been used for a well known plant. Correction in author citation based on International Plant Names Index, "In the past, this name was ascribed to Douglas ex Hook. (Fl. Bor.-Amer. 1: 208. 1832). The type information is from Raven &Gregory (Mem. Torrey Bot. Club 23: 23. 1972)".]"
