Genus & family checklist additions here

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

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 added Polytrichum and Rhytidiadelphus to the checklist, and confirmed that Hoylocomiaceae is already listed in the accepted family names list.

Gent, Belgium(Zone 8a)

Terry thanks!
But I found the family name HYLOCOMIACEAE for my moss (Rhytidiadelphus squarrosus) in this website;
http://www.botany.ubc.ca/bryophyte/stanleypark/rhytidiadelphus_squarrosus/index.htm
I didn't find HYLOCOMIACEAE in PF.

Please try adding an entry using it - it *should* work. There are some names in the checklist, even though they don't yet have any entries in PlantFiles.

Gent, Belgium(Zone 8a)

I'm sorry Terry, but it doesn't work;

I'm copying here what it says;


The family name is not in our checklist. Did you mean....Hylocomiaceae or Heliconiaceae?
If you're certain you entered a valid name, contact us for assistance.

Another genus to add Terry is Parmelia, from Parmelia caperata.
Family seems already entered.

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

bonitin, are you trying to add it in all capitals? If so, try without and it should work.

Hylocomiaceae is the one you want and it's the first one the system asked about in the error message posted above.

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

Sorry - my misspelling. You asked about Hylocomiaceae:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/p.php?pid=4481525 and that's what is in PlantFiles (not Hoylocomiaceae.)

I've also added Parmelia to the genus checklist.

Gent, Belgium(Zone 8a)

No Joan I didn't enter it in capitals, it just appeared like this in my post because I coppied it from that website I found its family name.


Thanks Terry I'll try again.
the hyper link in your last post doesn't seem to work..

Gent, Belgium(Zone 8a)

But now it worked !!! :-)
Thanks!

Golden, CO(Zone 5b)

Hi, I'm trying to find or add 'Pausinystalia' under family 'Rubiaceae', says genus Pausinystalia doesn't exist. Coryanthe, it's former, doesn't exist either. Is there a different genus I should use for this plant? thanks for your help, Marlon

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

Pausinystalia has been added to the accepted genus list. You should be able to add your plant now.

Beautiful, BC(Zone 9b)

Hi Marlon,

Pausinystalia is an accepted name in Plantfiles so you can add the species you mentioned. If you wish to verify names you can use tropicos: http://www.tropicos.org/NameSearch.aspx?name=Pausinystalia and RHS http://www.rhs.org.uk/databases/summary.asp

Golden, CO(Zone 5b)

Thanks for the links! I was unaware of them. Can you add one more genus, Opopanax?

Family: Apiaceae , Genus: Opopanax

http://www.tropicos.org/Name/50218400
THANKS! Marlon

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

Opoponax has been added to the accepted list. Thanks!

Churchill, Victoria, Australia(Zone 10a)

Terry,
could you please add the genus Alania to the checklist please. I am not sure what family to put it in. My books have it as Liliaceae, but the on-line version of the New South Wales Flora places it in Anthericaceae, but so are several other genera that we have recorded as Liliaceae: http://plantnet.rbgsyd.nsw.gov.au/cgi-bin/NSWfl.pl?page=nswfl&lvl=fm&name=Anthericaceae

Ken

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

Please add genus Chiongraphis (family Liliaceae) - I have a picture of Chiongraphis japonica to add to PlantFiles.

Churchill, Victoria, Australia(Zone 10a)

I just looked up that plant, and I think you have mispelled the genus. I think it should be Chionographis japonica. You omitted the second o.

Ken

Belfield, ND(Zone 4a)

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.

Raleigh, NC(Zone 7b)

Thanks - sorry for the typo!

Gent, Belgium(Zone 8a)

I wanted to add Selinum tenuifolium to PF, but it doesn't eccept the Fam. name; Umbelliferae/Apiaceae

I found it on this site and copied it from there..

http://www.edirectory.co.uk/chilternseeds/pages/moreinfo.asp?pe=DEBJFDAQ_+selinum+tenuifolium&cid=211

Murfreesboro, TN(Zone 7a)

bonitin, use Apiaceae as the family name (Umbelliferae is the older name; PlantFiles will only recognize the newer one.)

Churchill, Victoria, Australia(Zone 10a)

Terry,

could you please add the Genus Bertya in the Euphorbiaceae,

Ken

Ewing, KY(Zone 6a)

It's been added.
