  Comment: Salix clarkei Bebb (TSN 22520) is an herbarium label name (nomen nudum) for the hybrid Salix candida Flüggé ex Willd. × Salix petiolaris Sm. Aside from the hybrid formula, which cannot at present be properly rendered in ITIS, there is apparently no validly published name for this hybrid taxon
