Taxonomy: There has been a good deal of taxonomic discussion in recent years regarding some of the species in the Cupressaceae. This has resulted in Monterey Cypress being classified as Cupressus macrocarpa (Royal Bot. Garden, Kew; USDA GRIN), Hesperocyparis macrocarpa (The Jepson Manual, 2nd Ed.), and Callitropsis macrocarpa (Integrated Taxonomic Information System).
