Dear all,

I was very sorry to read in the latest newsletter of the Geraniaceae Group 
of the death of this lady at Saint-Etienne du Mont, France on 30 July 2003 
at the age of 89.  Dr Lourteig worked in the genus Oxalis at the Museum 
National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris for many years, publishing many papers 
on the subject including, to my knowledge, a revision of Section 
Corniculatae DC for the Americas, as well as a number of new species.  It 
was rumoured that she had been working on a wider revision of the genus 
some years ago, but presumably that is now lost.

(Perhaps one of the list members that belongs to the Oxalis list could pass 
this news on as I seem to have dropped out of membership and am not clear 
how to return!  Many thanks)

Best regards,
David Victor
