Sorting Neocupressus  names

Species on this page ( A = names approved by most authorities, s = approved as synonyms) :

The above are proposed by D.J. de Laubenfels (2009). They have not yet appeared on most of the references we consulted so we will refrain from transferring many records until most taxonomists adopt these as preferred names. We must point out that the links do not necessarily lead to the preferred names of the moment, although those will be found among the synonyms.. The taxonomy of the cypresses of the "New World" is in a very dynamic mode and time needs to pass before the classification is clear to non specialists. This is a very inappropriate time to match botanical Latin to common names but one has to start sometime anyhow.
