This is a question best handled by @KentPfeiffer. He's in charge of the asters.

Chrysopsis isn't one of the genera currently included in the Asters Database and, as far as I can tell, none of them were ever classified in Aster. So I'd prefer not to include them in there.

Don't see any problem creating a general entry for Chrysopsis if Lin needs one?

Sorry, Kent. The common name threw me. Smiling Go ahead and create the general Chrysopsis entry.

Thank you Kent ... much appreciated!

Sorry for creating any confusion. Golden Aster is the common name for many of the Chrysopsis.
