    1. Reviewed by Tom Chester    Jan 19, 2006

    Action: changed name from "Prunus fremontii" to "Ziziphus parryi var. parryi "

    Reviewer's comments:
         "This plant cannot be Prunus fremontii since the leaf blade is not ovate to round, and is not serrate, and the leaf base is not obtuse to cordate. The leaf is instead a perfect match to that of Ziziphus parryi, which has a very similar-appearing fruit, and is reported to be present in this location by Beauchamp 1986."
