Was trying to enter Neottopteris nidus into the database as a new plant type, but the Genus is not represented here. Could we have it added please?

It is peculiar that the genus isn't represented here. Meanwhile, the synonym (Asplenium nidus) was in our database. I've added Neottopteris nidus to that entry as the accepted name. I'll have to figure out why we don't have any of the other Neottopteris species in our database. I think there was some controversy for quite a while over the status of that genus, with some people deciding it was a synonym of Asplenium. Now the situation appears to have been reversed.

Bird's Nest Fern (Asplenium nidus)
