I do not think Tagetes erecta is an acceptable species for this plant. Tagetes tenuifolia is the correct designation.

OK. Thanks. I've never seen that anywhere else. I see patula there too, as a synonym.

T. patula is an accepted species name, but T. patula var. patula and T. patula f. patula are synonyms for T. erecta.

All of the information I gave you earlier has now been changed in the Catalogue of Life, as of 29 July 2014. T. tenuifolia is an accepted name again.

Thank you so much! Hurray! I stopped suggesting new Marigolds for the database because I was bothered by the absence of tenuifolia. I usually embrace reclassification, but that one was hard to accept.
