A correction to a Salvia sp. name

In another thread, Paulm writes:

"I have donated seeds of this species as Salvia sp TUR03-148, Salvia staminea or Salvia staminea  ex. TUR03-148 over the past four years or so, and if you happen to have a plant named any of the previous you need to get out your pen and paper, because it is WRONG.
The right name should be Salvia virgata var alba. Maybe this should be made known to a wider audience in the SRGC Journal ?"

Well, we can give it a wide audience here!
This is Paul's photo of the plant...... click to enlarge........
