* to return to my original respelling of 'ops' on this thread - it's not 
that hard to program gender or other errors in the term searched for - I 
just googled "Caltha palustrus" and google came back with...

Showing results for Caltha palustris
Search instead for Caltha palustrus

...and if I'd included an author, google could have picked out what I'd 
meant with an even more different spelling - so only getting the exact 
spelling searched for is an artifact of a behind-the-times system.
