And I would add that there is no Lep community when it comes to gender
agreement.  Maybe most do not worry about it, but either way it's not a
'community decision'. Certainly it is a confusing situation.For the group I
study a global list was one setup for which I understand that gender
agreement was not followed, but I did not have the level of fanatical
intent (in this particular case) to check up on the gender applicable for
each species and so unless something indicates the need to the contrary I
have followed that list. For example, there was case the usage in the
country of origin for a particular species did follow gender agreement
(following a taxonomic revision to that effect) so I ignore the global list
preference for not doing so.
