As many of you know, PlantFiles uses a checklist for all new entries to check for genus and family names that have been reviewed and validated.

This new thread (continued from here: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/768705/ ) is for any PF user to request an additional genus or family name not already on our checklist.

If you include a family name, please note whether it needs to be added to the checklist, or if you're simply including it for reference.

Terry could you please add the genus Polytrichum to PF.
The family polytrichaceae is already in it.

Also the genus Rhytidiadelphus and the family Hylocomiaceae

I've researched Alania several times and also had trouble finding what family it belonged in. We know we have some genera still in Liliaceae that has been moved to another family. We've started working on those.

Alania was a little tough to find, but The International Plant Names Index agrees with the New South Wales Flora website, so let's put it in Anthericaceae. If we find later that it belongs in a different family we will update it, but for now, that's the most current information I could find. I've added Alania to the accepted list.

Tom, I've added Chionographis to the accepted list also. The International Plant Names Index, as well as the Royal Horticultural Society places it in the Melanthiaceae family. I've added Chionographis to the accepted list also.

Sorry for the delay. I don't know how we missed this.

I did some checking, and the only references I can find to Zephybranthes is on the Plant Delights website, and a couple other citations on a couple other websites. None of our resources have it listed as a valid genus. It may still be working it's way down the pipe though.

The Royal Horticultural Society has 'Norma Pearl' listed as Zephyranthes, and until more is published about the intergeneric hybrid Zephybranthes, I think we should stick with how RHS has it listed. Later, if Zephybranthes becomes more widely accepted, we can update the entry then. I hope this link works. If not, type in Norma Pearl and it will bring it up. http://www.rhs.org.uk/databases/summary2.asp?crit=Norma and Pearl&Genus=Zephyranthes

Can I question the use of the family Lomandraceae. In the Flora of Australia this family was merged into the Xanthorrhoeaceae. It appears from the Flora of New South Wales, that the Lomandraceae has been reinstated, however we already have 8 plants of the genus Lomandra in PlantFiles, all recorded as Xanthorrhoeaceae.

I don't know which is the right way to go, but we should be consistent and that would seem to mean at least for the present that Lomandra's should all remain in Xanthorrhoeaceae,

Ken,

I've added Phyllota to the accepted list.

I'm having a little trouble determining if Euryomyrtus is the current genus and Baeckea the synonym, or if it's the other way around. Do you know which one is the current? We already have Baeckea in PlantFiles, so before I add Euryomyrtus I want to make sure which is the current name. Perhaps not all species transferred either to/from Euryomyrtus either.

Can you help me understand what the deal is with this?

Joan,

my understanding is that Euryomyrtus is the current genus name for Euryomyrtus ramosissima, which is the secies I am wanting to add. The genus Baeckea was a large one in Australia and has recently been thoroughly revised. I have been following these revisions with all the (once Baeckea) species that I have images of.

This site gives the revisions in full and has been my source for all the Baeckea names: http://asgap.org.au/APOL24/dec01-2.html

I have already added several species in one of the other new genera, Babingtonia: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/adv_search.php?searcher[common]=&searcher[family]=&searcher[genus]=Babingtonia&searcher[species]=&searcher[cultivar]=&searcher[hybridizer]=&searcher[grex]=&search_prefs[blank_cultivar]=&search_prefs[sort_by]=rating&images_prefs=both&Search=Search
and in each case have added Baeckea as a synonym,

I think it is therefore safe to use Euryomyrtus. It is used in the current Flora of New South Wales, which is on the web in its entirety: http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/NSWfl.pl?page=nswfl&lvl=sp&name=Euryomyrtus~ramosissima
The synonym appears on the page for the subspecies prostrata.

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, this entry would be the one you are looking for, but needs the genus updated and Baeckea moved to status?

Thanks Joan, I had forgotten that I had made an entry and added some images previously, before I became aware of the name change. I have made the changes myself, so it now reads Euryomyrtus ramosissima, with the synonym set to Baeckea ramosissima. I was able to change it because I made the original entry. Thanks for your help,

Hi Ken,

Hymenophytum and Hymenophytaceae have been added to the accepted list. Thank you for your patience while we discussed this. It's a new plant type for us and we aren't familiar with it yet.

My confusion was that I initially found it listed in the plant kingdom, but when I went looking for some resources for these types of plants (GRIN and IPNI don't cover them), I found some resources that listed the kingdom as unknown.

I really do think they are in the plant kingdom, but if we later find that they are not, we will deal with that then.

I'm still looking for some good resources for these. If I find any I'll post them here.

You have authorised Hymenophytum, but it should have been Hymenophyton. There are a great many more references on the net to Hymenophyton, so maybe it would have been less of a problem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hymenophyton_flabellatum

Hi Ken,

I believe I've got all the new genera added, along with the families that needed to be added. The first one is Pseudoscleropodium - correct? And we have Pleuroziaceae listed as a valid family name; is Pleurozium in a different family?

Warm regards,

Thanks Terry.

Yes it should be Pseudoscleropodium! Sorry about my typing!

I have checked on Pleurozium. Googling Pleurozium schreberi I get this which says it in Hylocomiaceae: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleurozium_schreberi

Searching for that species with the family gives 91 hits with Pleuroziaceae
but 1960 hits with Hylocomiaceae, so unless you have a definite authority to refer to I would stick to its being in Hylocomiaceae,

Terry, I did a little further checking by googling Pleuroziaceae on the web. It seems that Pleuroziaceae is a family of liverworts, containing just one genus Pleurozia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pleurozia

The genus Pleurozium is a moss not a liverwort, hence it is not in that family but in Hylocomiaceae, which is a moss family.

I am amazed at two genera with such a tiny spelling difference between them and it is easy to see why that would lead to mistakes in allocating species to the right family!

Here's where we announced and explained the rationale: http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/413338/

As far as displaying it for informational purposes, it's important to keep in mind that Plantfiles is a database, and as such, each field for a plant's name must meet certain criteria. If we added a listing for Fabaceae for informational purposes) that would place it on our family checklist, and allow it to be used to create new entries - some of which could easily be duplicative.

Post #7647961

Thanks for the reply and link to the thread. Since I am a computer programmer, I naturally automatically think of alternatives. One obvious alternative is to add an edit check to the family field, and if Fabaceae is entered, provide a popup from which to choose the appropriate subfamily.

Another obvious suggestion would be to not prompt for a family when a subfamily is sometimes called for. This can be fixed with a simple label change. It never dawned on me to enter Papilionidae because I was being asked to enter a family name. I couldn't believe it when the system would accept neither Fabaceae nor Leguminosae, the only two family names I knew of. Had the label suggested I could have entered a subfamily name, that would have been helpful.

Finally, in most cases, the genus is already in the system. The user should not be required to enter a family name if it's already known. If it is left blank, the system should look it up from its store of knowledge. The user can then confirm it or select from alternatives in the unlikely event there are multiple possibilities.

We just added the genus to the accepted list, so that means no Saposhnikovia entries exist in PlantFiles yet. Once there are some entries created, then the search will bring them up.

To add a plant, click on the 'Add A Plant' link underneath the tabs in the PlantFiles environment. Fill in the common name, family, genus and species field (cultivar also if there is one) and click on submit. Then you can go back to the entry and finish filling in the details, add a photo and comment if you wish.

Try that and let us know if you have any further problems.

Would you also add Myodocarpus to the genus checklist. Some sources list it in the Araliaceae but others place it in the family Myodocarpaceae. Thank you.

I added the genus - I'd like to have some others weigh in before adding the family.

For now I made my entries under the Araliaceae. I figured it can be changed if need be. While I'm at it would you please add a few more genera to the list for me. They are: Polyosma, Robinsonia, and Stilbocarpa. Thank you.

Thanks Terry, could you please also add the Genus: Sundacarpus in the Podocarpaceae

This one Sundacarpus amara seems to also have synonyms Prumnopitys and Podocarpus for the genus, but is listed as Sundacarpus amara in the Flora of Australia,

Terry, how are the Plant Files kept up to date with the seemingly endless changes in classification currently going on in plant taxonomy? Is there a website that has the latest accepted taxonomy? Looking something up at the Kew site I saw that Calamintha is supposedly a "non-accepted genus", with Clinopodium being the accepted name. Plant Files still uses the Calamintha genus, as do other resources I checked out.

We have some volunteer editors who painstakingly work to keep PF updated. We are typically not quick to jump on taxonomic shifts, because sometimes they move back-and-forth, so we let the dust settle before we make a move. On any page of PlantFiles (even a page of search results), you'll see a red "report an error" button - you can click on it to let them know about possible changes such as the Calamintha to Clinopodium. They will investigate it and determine what we should do.

The genus was previously placed in the family: Pterobryaceae, but I am pretty sure it is now in Trachylomataceae,

HEHEHEHEHEHE! I was just giving you a hard time. :>)

I saw we had Pterobryaceae listed, but I didn't add Trachylomataceae because I missed it. I don't know why it would have accepted the Family name if it wasn't in our list. But maybe that's why it wouldn't accept Trachyloma. I've now added Trachylomataceae to the Family list. Give it another try and let me know whether or not it works now.
