Dear Stephen, all,

I've just modified my display code so that the original genus and its authorship is also displayed along with each homonymous species name, which may be of interest to users and also with regard to wikispecies entries etc.

However I'm not sure how manual wikispecies data entry will scale to cope with the hundreds/thousands of disambiguation pages needed for the cases of within-genus homonymy, not presently included in my list; there are plenty of these to be found e.g. within Catalogue of Life, see for example


(I am presuming that not all of these can in fact be "provisionally accepted names" even though listed as such, and maybe the promised appearance of "The Plant List" will fix the majority of these as synonyms).

Regards - Tony
