I just have a simple question. Since while discussing taxa in a
publication, we mainly use accepted names, will it be alright if I use the
statement "Anagallis arvensis L. var. caerulea (L.) Gouan differes from
Anagallis arvensis L. subsp. foemina (Mill.) Schinz & Thell in following
, will it be alright for my *more expert scholars??*
