Bill, I have been sort of out of commission for a few days as I get my study,
books, papers, etc in order (am almost done)!!  I have a a request for your
professional advice.  I have seen the abbreviation "Ii." used in front of a
 series of iris species names to preclude having to use the "I." in front of
each name.  I used this in an article I recently wrote, and the editor doubts
its usage.  Now, I have searched in vain my botanical latin books, but can
find no authority.  Can you advise on this?

(I won my argument with the editor over use of the form "I. albertii" instead
of "I. Albertii---Hortus 3 was her source, but I cited decision to use lower
case for all species names which are latinized versions of peoples
names---but alas, I can find no authority for the "Ii.")  Clarence
