Search solution for changed names

1276 Views 39 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Cavan Allen

Syngonanthus sp. 'Belem' used to be listed as Tonina sp. 'Belem' (just as Syngonanthus sp. 'Manuas' was listed as Tonina sp. 'Manaus'). The only real Tonina is Tonina fluviatilis.

Please let me know if it's possible to do the following:

A search by genus for Tonina brings up all 3.

In other words, it not only brings up the real Tonina, but also the ones that used to be listed as such. If I could tell you the ones that have been changed and would come up that way, that would be best. I'm only talking about a dozen or so here.

Please, oh please, tell me you can do this.

Thank you.

I put them in that way because scientific names are supposed to be italicized. I noticed, though, that when I put in a synonym, that field is automatically italicized.

Look at this:
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba'.

The parts that are supposed to be italicized are, and the ones that aren't...aren't. So, I'd prefer that names not automatically be italicized (synonyms aren't as important). But even if they all have the html tags, wouldn't they all be the same up until the first letter of the genus name and therefore be in order?
