  • APC Comment: D.P.Little, Syst. Bot. 33: 461-480 (2006) argues for the transfer of New World Cupressus into the genus Callitropsis Oerst. However, A.Farjon (pers. comm. 2007) disagrees with this interpretation. A proposal to reject Callitropsis in favour of Xanthocyparis Farjon & T.H.NgyuĂȘn is also under consideration. Accordingly, a conservative approach has been adopted for the purposes of this exercise.
