Has 2 different scientific name spellings, difference is an i; I think that is the correct designation - Strobilanthes dyerianus. Not sure what to do about that.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Don't know the correct answer for you, but the tag I have in front of me spells it the way you have in your post

well phooey...looks like I added my images to the wrong spelling. Guess I only thought I could see Glare What now? or in fact are they both the same?

I use The Plant List as my definitive place for plant names. We make labels for the Botanical Garden, so it's good to have a final word from an authoritative source.

It's supposed to be approved or not by a moderator once it is submitted. But it goes without saying that there will be variations of spelling in the database from time to time. I'm glad jmorth caught it.

Seems the added "i" is the preferred spelling. I'm sure it will be changed. Won't it?

Yep, Strobilanthes dyerianus. I can't remember if I'm the one who entered it in the database or not, but if so I misspelled it. I'm pretty certain the correct spelling is dyerianus ... so all of the images here: need to be moved over to the correct entry. I will go put in the request to move mine right now.

Ok, I submitted the request to move my photo's and comment, and I added the information I know regarding the plant to S. dyerianus.

jmorth: I've sent you ten acorns as a thank you for catching that error in the database! I'm pretty sure it was my entry misspelled as S. dyeranus.

I would have just deleted the other one and then changed the spelling of the one with all the images. But this works too.
