My second List sent to the compilers of The Plant List:

Further to my earlier communication, here are some more omissions/

1. *Spilanthes* *acmella* var. *calva*
(DC.)<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-66838> on
both pages should have full authority citation *Spilanthes acmella* var. *
calva* (DC.) C. B. Clarke ex Hook.f.
2. *Spilanthes* *acmella* var. *paniculata* (Wall. ex
DC.)<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-38903> should
be deleted as next entry *Spilanthes* *acmella* var. *paniculata* (Wall. ex
DC.) C. B. Clarke ex Hook.f. has full authority citation.
3. *Spilanthes* *paniculata*
Wall.<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-8229> [Invalid]
should be deleted as previous entry has complete citation *Spilanthes* *
paniculata* Wall. ex DC. <http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-108940> If
we cite such invalid names then every author combination......... A ex B
would have one invalid name ............ A.
3. *Erigeron* *multicaulis*
 falls in same category, next entry *Erigeron* *multicaulis* Wall. ex
DC.<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-93955> It
needs to be simply deleted rather than listing as unresolved name.
4.  *Erigeron* *multiradiatus* var.
*salicifolius*<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-64161> is
listed without any author citation. It should be entered as: *Erigeron* *
multiradiatus* (Lindl. ex DC.) Benth. & Hook.f. var. *salicifolius* Chang
ex Ling & Y.L.Chen<http://www.ipni.org/ipni/idPlantNameSearch.do?id=877210-1&back_page=%2Fipni%2FeditAdvPlantNameSearch.do%3Ffind_infragenus%3D%26find_isAPNIRecord%3Dtrue%26find_geoUnit%3D%26find_includePublicationAuthors%3Dtrue%26find_addedSince%3D%26find_family%3D%26find_genus%3DErigeron%26find_sortByFamily%3Dtrue%26find_isGCIRecord%3Dtrue%26find_infrafamily%3D%26find_rankToReturn%3Dall%26find_publicationTitle%3D%26find_authorAbbrev%3D%26find_infraspecies%3D%26find_includeBasionymAuthors%3Dtrue%26find_modifiedSince%3D%26find_isIKRecord%3Dtrue%26find_species%3D%26output_format%3Dnormal>
 -- Acta Phytotax. Sin. 11 (4): 411 (1973).
5.  *Aster* *peduncularis* Wall ex
 is cited  as accepted name without any synonyms, where as N. Hind in a
very well documented paper from RBG in 2008 has clearly settled the
synonymy of this species. As such *Aster* *asperulus* (DC.) Wall. ex
 (treated as unresolved in your database), *Diplopappus* *asperulus*
DC.<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-80099> (basionym
of previous species, but treated as synonym *Symphyotrichum* *undulatum* (L.)
G.L.Nesom <http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-81459> in your
database),  Aster peduncularis Wall. ex Nees subsp. nepalensis Grierson,
Notes Roy. Bot. Gard.Edinb. 26(1): 95 (1964).(missing from your database), *
Amphirhapis* *peduncularis*
DC.<http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/gcc-85874> (treated
as synonym *Symphyotrichum* *undulatum* (L.)
 in your database), *Cineraria* *ovata* Spreng. ex
 (treated as synonym *Symphyotrichum* *undulatum* (L.)
 in your database), should all be cited as synonyms of above species.
