When I access Corydalis (Pseudofumaria alba subsp. acaulis) in the DB it says that it's in my list and will actually take me to a page that notes that I did indeed winter sow seeds for it. However, if I try a search on my Lists page for corydalis it doesn't show up. Nor does it show up if I look for it in my w/s seeds category (working from that same main page).

I'm Confused . Is it something I did wrong, or is it something else? Maybe a name change issue?

I see it on your general list under "P" (Pseudofumaria). It has these notes following it, so it's probably also listed in these categories:
Wintersown seeds - 2014
Herbacious perennials
Procured seeds

Yup. I can see it there, too, same as zuzu.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Thanks.

I can see it now. I was confused because some of my corydalis is searchable under corydalis, but the pseudofumaria isn't, even though the name begins the same (corydalis). Why is the entry for this one begun (in its title) with a synonym name that's still used as a genus name for other similar plants? Is it just because there's no other common name for it?

I'll probably never be able to remember what to look for when searching for this plant, so I think I'll start a new category for disremembered plants. Some of the mimulus and grass-like plants can be added to it as well. Whistling

Oh! Maybe I can make it searchable under corydalis by proposing same as a common name! I'll try that.

Nope, it's already listed that way. The search just doesn't find it.
